Keep your details up to date

It's now possible for you to log in to the Apex website and keep your team details up to date with any changes between now and the next event.

When you registered to take part in the competition you were asked to create a password. This would have been emailed to you and all the other team members whose email addresses were included in your team's details when you entered.

It's really important that all your team's details (including your names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers) are kept up to date between now and the event in case we need to get in touch with you. It's also those details which we'll be using during the weekend too. If there are any changes or you notice anything is wrong, then please go to the Team List page, click on your team, enter your password and click the Edit Team Details button. You can then make your changes.

If you lose or forget your password then there are also links to get a new password which will be sent to you and the rest of your team. If you didn't get the initial password, it may be because your email address wasn't give to us. In that case, ask whoever entered your team for the password.

Why not take a look now? Make sure everything is right and if not, get to work making the changes. Unfortunately it's not possible to change your T-shirt order and around a week before the event we'll also lock all the team names from being changed as well so make sure your team name is finalised by then too!

Event sells out in less than two hours

Wow. What a frantic morning that was! Apex HQ was buzzing earlier as 90 teams managed to book their place in this year's Apex Extreme in less than two hours. We knew demand for the competition was going to be huge after the Overnight Challenge sold out earlier this year in a day and a half but that was phenomenal.

A massive congratulations to all the teams who've managed to confirm their places in the competition. It's going to be a great weekend and we're really looking forward to seeing you all there. To those teams who wanted to take part but didn't manage to secure a place, keep checking the website for details of our events in 2012. We've got big things planned for next year to celebrate the event's 10th birthday. More details about that soon!

Entries open for Apex Extreme

Entries for this year's Apex Extreme are now open. There's space for 90 teams to take part in the competition on the weekend of 30th September - 2nd October near Otley in West Yorkshire. Demand for our events is always high and after the last event sold out in just 36 hours we know that places are likely to disappear in this event very quickly too.

It'll be a three-day test of your skills packed with thrilling activities and exciting adventures. We've already confirmed we'll be including slacklining and grass sledging in the activity bases, plus the new urban element to the event which will test competitors in a totally different way. As always teamwork and a good strategy are crucial to win points and ultimately the honour of being crowned the winning team. It's a weekend not to be missed.


At £100 per team of four the event is also still great value, so book your place now before it's too late! Use the comments below to tell us what you'd like to see at this event!
