    Team Information:

    Number of teams: Each Business Unit can enter 2 teams

    Support drivers:  Support drivers will be needed for the Titan and the Torpedo teams.  

    Navigation skills: All teams must have at least one person who is confident in their ability to map read and navigate safely through the mountains.  Although the Brecon Beacons has some very well marked paths, the weather can be very changeable at any time of the year and knowing how to use a map and compass will be vital.  The Mountain Awareness Day is on Saturday 6th April and we would recommend that at least one member of your team attends
