Secret 10k Mission: Deptford & Greenwich
On Sunday 30th September 2018, travel back to 1698 and race the streets to solve a Russian-themed murder
In this cryptic team challenge, you'll be transported back to 1698 to solve a Russian-themed murder.
Register your team at Grandad's Shed (SE8 4BX) between 11:30am and 12:30pm, use the bag drop and facilities.
Then you'll head to a secret location nearby to meet a fellow crimefighter who will get up to speed on the investigation and give you your mission brief and map.
Once briefed, it's off to the beautiful streets of Greenwich and Deptford to find clues, interrogate suspects and interview witnesses - will you be the fastest team to crack the case?
Get back to base, hand in your solution, get a well-earned medal and goodybag and celebrate your detective skills over a drink with your team.
The mission is self-guided so you can take it at any pace you like - some people walk all the way round.

"It was an incredible day out. The organisation was great with friendly event staff. The route was challenging but enjoyable, linking up the different characters who were played extremely well. Great bunch of people to have a beer with at the end too. Definitely would recommend."
Do I have to run?
Nope. Our events are about mental and physical agility, but above all, fun. The winner is the fastest to correctly solve the puzzle. So you might be in with a chance if all the teams faster than you get it wrong!
How many people per team?
You can go it alone, in pairs, or in a group up to 6.
Do we have to sign up together?
No, you can sign up separately and just register together on the day.
Is there a bag drop?
Yes, there's a ticketed bag drop on the day of the event at the start venue. There are also toilet, and plenty of water to fill up your bottles.
Are there prizes?
Oh yes. They are announced once everyone is back at base.
What if I get stuck?
You won't. Our missions are designed so that everyone gets round it - but you might not all hand in the correct solution at the end.
So I start between 11:30am and 12:30pm?
Yes - we ask runners who are planning on walking to begin between 11:30am to 11:45am and those who are pacier to begin between 12:15pm and 12:30pm.
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself, comfy shoes and a charged phone with data. and your team if you have one. Oh, and don't forget your detectives hat and a backpack/bumbag to store your clues (one per team is fine).
