Avoid those post-Apex blues!

So now all the excitement of the Apex Challenge has passed, how are you feeling? A bit down and deflated? Missing the adventure? Well there's plenty of ways of reliving the drama of the weekend on the Apex Challenge website, while starting to plan for what's ahead...

Analyse your results So how did your score come about? Check out your individual results which show exactly where you went and when. Have a look at the times to see where you could have been that bit faster, but also check out the teams who came either side of you. It might be worth having a sneaky look at those teams who came top - maybe you could steal some ideas and tactics for next time!

Track down your friends With more than three hundred photos now in the official Apex Overnight Challenge photo album, it's worth having a look to see how many times you and your mates were snapped by our photographers. We're already planning which ones will make it onto our giant banners for next time!

Find us on Facebook The Apex Challenge page on Facebook is packed with new comments and posts about the event. All our photos are also on there - so why not tag all your team-mates and join the discussions. Is an Apex picture your profile pic yet?

Get ready for Autumn The next Apex Challenge is sooner than you think, so now is the time to get planning. The incredible Apex Extreme will be taking place in West Yorkshire on 31st September - 2nd October. Although we're increasing the number of team spaces available, the event is sure to be a sell-out once again, so make sure you're prepared for when entries open at the start of September. Have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing you for more Apex action in October!

Amazing activities for this weekend

We couldn't wait to tell you about all the fantastic activity bases that we've got lined up for this weekend's Apex Overnight Challenge, so if you weren't already counting down the days to Saturday then you soon will be!

It's easily going to be our best range of activity bases yet. Archery and pistol shooting are now confirmed. We've ordered in our biggest ever inflatable assault course. There are some old favourites in there as well, including what promises to be a spectacular high ropes course. We're also hoping there'll be a few surprises along the way as well. And don't forget there's the added excitement of doing all of those in the dark!

But don't think it's going to be a walk in the park. Oh no. The Apex Chasers will be out and they're determined to catch more teams than ever. They've been in training and we've set them targets of how many teams we want them to steal points from so you'll need to be on your guard so you don't lose those valuable Apex Points.

And, not that we're wanting to jinx it, but the word is it COULD be the hottest weekend of the year so far. All in all it sounds pretty good. Let us know what bits of it you're most looking forward to and we'll see you all on Saturday!

T-shirts arrive at Apex HQ

We've just  taken delivery of several hundred of this year's exclusive Apex Challenge T-shirts and we're so excited by how they look we just had to put a photo on here straight away!

The sapphire blue wordsearch design already looks like being one of the most popular we've ever created and you don't want to be the only team not wearing one at our competitions. If you haven't pre-ordered one already then make sure you bring £5 with you to buy one over the weekend.

Let us know what you think of the design too!
