Our first priority is your health and safety and we will have fully qualified medical crews at the start, basecamp, finish and every pit stop in between. They will be there mainly for serious injuries, but will also be dispensing advice on the best ways of dealing with your feet and the inevitable aches and pains that come with spending that much time on your feet.

Participant transport to the start and from the finish: We use a 3rd party who provide shuttles to and from key locations.

Merchandise: T-shirts and other event merchandise are available to buy before, during and after the event.
