October Full Moon Hike
Join our second installment of our new Full Moon Hiking Series.
Every month, starting September 2018, we will go hiking under the Moonlight, as close as possible to the Full Moon.
On October 26th, 2018, we will hike about 60 minutes away from central Jeddah – the exact location will be shared with registered participants. ( The October Hike is in a different location than the September Hike!)
We will have ONE group and will cover 8.5km.
The Course is rated with an IBP Index = 27
(as a reference here are some previous hikes IBP indexes:
- GREENgroup: September Full Moon – IBP Index: 25
- BLUEgroup: September Full Moon – IBP Index: 32
- BLUEgroup: One Peak (Jabal Serr) – IBP Index: 69
- REDgroup: TWO Peaks (Jabal Daf) – IBP Index: 92 )
Note: There is a secret shortcut which you will be able to take cutting down the distance to 6.2km, but you’ll be on your own for 1.2km
- A small backpack (or hydration pack ) with 1 liter of water per person minimum will be required ( not provided by the Organizers). Snacks optional.
- A smartphone with the apps MAPS.ME pre-downloaded ( there will be no 3G signal at the start line ) and BlueTooth capable ( to receive the map), and with a fully-loaded battery.
- A head torch ( or hand torch ) with RED LIGHT mode. you will not be allowed to start the hike if your torch doesn’t have a RedLight mode. The Red Light helps preserve your night vision and will make the hike more enjoyable for all. 40 Head Torches with RedLight are available for lease from the organizers at the time or registration. Just to be clear WHITE LIGHT Head Torch will NOT be able to join the group. We will check.
Notes regarding the Leased Head Torches:
- in our Full Moon September event, we were not able to meet the demand for Leased Head Torches. We bought more than the dozen initially purchased but still were short.
- If you don’t want to be disappointed, book early!
- your Head Torch will only be confirmed upon receiving your payment. In short, paying by Credit Card will guarantee you a Head-Torch if available. We will however only lock your Head-Torch if you pay by Bank Transfer upon reception of the funds. The same applies to Cash Payment on Pick-Up ( where you will be asked to meet us BEFORE the event to pay ). Selecting Cash On Delivery ( Pay on the Day) is likely to lead to disappointment if you need a Head-Torch. You’ve been warned!
- 22 SAR if you Bring Your Own HeadTorch with a RedLight Mode.
- 30 SAR if you want to LEASE a HeadTorch with a RedLight Mode.
