One hundred and sixteen runners entered the first Maze Runner Event in 2016 which took place at the Elton Giant Mazes. The Lions and the Mazes combined to provide a Run over a 2K,  5K or 10K course followed by Obstacles and Challenges and a run through the Elton Giant Mazes. The 5K run included a cannicross section where runners ran with their dogs. The 10K Run included a tough climb up to the Littledean Hill Ridge and back down the Mazes.  On returning to the Mazes the Runners were challenged by the Newnham Girl Guides and Lydney Sea Cadet to recall Darth Vader’s Flight Number back to his Death Star.  Those who could not remember the number were subject to an attack by Flour, Holi Powder and water squirts.
