What you need to know before you apply. Please read these carefully before you commit to entering the Event even if you have participated before.
Event and Final Details
Whilst these documents can be viewed in a browser to get the best out of them and make printing easier we advise using Adobe Acrobat Reader which can be downloaded for free here.
2022 Event Details are essential reading for any Challenger participating in TGOC22 but also give an idea of what is involved to any one considering entering in the future. They give guidance on route planning, presentation and submission.
2022 Final Details – essential up to date information for those participating in TGOC22. Please note the Participants List is only available by email to those involved in the Event.
Medical Information and Emergency Contacts Form
Please present your route on one of the forms below making sure you have selected the correct form for your start date. We cannot accept it in any other format.
MAC USERS – PLEASE NOT WE CANNOT OPEN “PAGES” DOCUMENTS. Please save as a PDF document before submitting it to the coordinators.
Before you submit it, however many Challenges you have completed, please ensure it complies with the Route Sheet Checklist
Please ensure your route sheet does not roll over onto a fourth page and do not remove any boxes. If you wish to base your route on one prepared, but not used, in 2020/21 your best option is to use one of the “Word” version as this will allow you to “cut’n’paste” unaltered sections. Please highlight any changes and do not simply adjust the dates on your 2020/21 route sheet as we need all route sheets in the same format.
Our preferred option is to use Word .docx version but if you use an older version of Microsoft Word or alternatives such as Open Office you may find some formatting issues and the older style .doc version may work better. Editable PDFs are available if you are unable to use either of the Word documents.
Microsoft Word – .docx
2022 Route sheet Tuesday start – .docx
2022 Route sheet Wednesday start – .docx
2022 Route sheet Thursday start – .docx
Microsoft Word – .doc
Please note there are a few minor anomalies, aesthetic rather than functional, which we cannot correct in the .doc version. If anyone with Word 2011 or 2007 can correct them please send us a copy!
These work best when opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader which is free to download
