    6th Anniversary Event
    The Great Gondor Race will lead through the regions of Gondor where most work has been done during the last year. It will consist of four stages:

    1. Andrast Mountain Flight
    2. Anfalas Road Run
    3. Lamedon and Belfalas Orienteering Race
    4. Southern Beacons Flight

    We will have a winner for each stage and an overall winner calculated based on points for each stage:
    Winner: 10 Points
    2nd placed: 9 Points
    3rd placed: 8 Points
    ....
    10th placed: 1 Point

    After each race some fun Hide and Seek games and Quizzes will take place at famous places in Gondor.

    1. Andrast Mountain Flight
    • October 10th, 19:00 BST
    • Start near Ras Morthil
    • Finish at Iant Dirnen
    A dashing flight race in the awesome landscape @jacenpeter and @Wroxxite are working on. You will fly through a twisting parcour with great views at mountains and cliffs.


    2. Anfalas Road Run

    • October 11th, 19:00 BST
    • Start in Salt Flats
    • Finish near Rendul Castle
    A beautiful run on roads in the lovely green hills of Anfalas @kisos and @DSESGH and many others spent hundreds of hours on. You will have to find the right road by looking out from one checkpoint for the next one.


    3. Lamedon and Belfalas orienteering Race
    • October 12th, 19:00 BST
    • Start in Rendul Castle
    • Finish at the town gate of Methrast
    Find your way through the regions of the first and latest project of Gondor we worked on this year. There will be very few checkpoints only which will be published shortly before the race.


    4. Southern Beacons Flight
    • October 13th, 19:00 BST
    • Start in palace of Dol Amroth
    • Finish at the Citadel of Minas Tirith
    A lot of new terrain, farms and villages were built during last year along the Southern Beacons of Gondor. Guess where the checkpoints will be.
