Upon discretion of race organizers, evidence of having completed a marathon or trail marathon or similar (open to interpretation..) may be required. This is a long, difficult race with a 12 hour cutoff, as a duty of care we are liable to ensure the suitability of entrants.
We are proud to be a UTMB qualifying race for 2020 (3 Points) as well as a ratified member of the ITRA
Points to Note:
Please note that trail shoes are mandatory for these races as the trails are slippery and with the potential to slip. There will be other mandatory kit items for this race which will be announced in due course. The race is a Ultra marathon (40 miles) however the distance will definitely not be bang on 40 miles, so please mentally prepare yourself for this. The course is marked to ensure that at decision points you will be told where to go, the general principle of these types of races is one of adventure so each twist and turn will not be marked, however as long as you keep the sea on your right on the way out, on the left on the way back, follow footpaths unless indicated to do otherwise and pay attention to the signage on the course you will be fine. If you have any doubt about the course we have provided a GPX file of the course on this page. It is advisable to download this to a device for reference.
Water stations are 7 miles apart on this course and you are expected to carry water receptacles to carry enough water to sustain yourself between these stations and if it is a hot day whilst we will ensure we have sufficient water at the checkpoints to ensure your safety it is your responsibility to carry enough water to hydrate yourself. From 2020 we will be going cupless, therefore if you wish to drink coke or squash at water checkpoints you will be required to carry your own re usable cup. Because the race is in May, it will generally be expected that it may be hot – please train in anticipation of this and take all necessary precautions to ensure your comfort on the day.
