Numbers and timing chips are to be collected on the day of the event at registration. Please make a note of your registration time for the distance you selected and make sure you arrive giving yourself enough time to register. Please also make a note of your briefing time and ensure you attend the briefing. Both the number and the timing chip have to be worn at all times during the event. You also have the chance to rent GPS tracking units, which enable your friends and family to track you all the way around the course.


We use a number of signs during our events. Arrow markers are on a hi-viz reflective red with white arrow to mark the direction to be taken. We advise runners to bring a map of the route with them on event day in case of emergencies. You can download the map and print it and you can download GPX files to your device.


At our checkpoints you will find water, squash, coke, electrolytes, sweets, crisps, nuts, chocolate, bananas, cake, new potatoes and other carby bits on the marathon and ultra checkpoints . We are trying to reduce the use of plastic so we ask runners to bring reusable cups for coke and squash.
