The Nippers Challenge is all about making sure that the younger brothers or sisters of our main XRACERS don’t miss out. ‘Nippers’ is for boys and girls who are six years and under.
Our Nippers are the curtain-raiser and start 30 minutes before the main XRACE.
Mum and Dad, you can charge over the course with them and still have time to complete the main XRACE.
N.B. Please note that the nippers race is a companion to the main XRACE and not a standalone race. It is best suited for younger siblings who already have brothers and sister who are taking part in the main XRACE
WHEN DOES NIPPERS START?
Nippers start approximately 30 minutes before the main XRACE. You can easily complete the nippers before the main XRACE event begins. At that point, you join with your older child and take on the XRACE challenge. Please note, we do not have any childcare facilities for looking after nippers.
Yes, you will have time to do both events.
This one is over to you. There are no lower limits to Nippers. You will be with your Nipper the whole way around! The upper limit is 6.
Nippers also need to be registered as well. The £10 entry fee covers the cost of their t-shirt and finish medal, along with a proud photo for the family paparazzi.
No, nippers are not timed.
The whole event takes about 5-10 minutes to complete the course.
