You must carry all your own kit at all times. This is Summer so we will be relaxing the full mandatory kit list down to just the following:
- Waterproof jacket
- Water bottle and or cup, there are none at any of the aid stations. (yes a water bladder counts as a bottle but then you WILL need a cup)
- Mobile phone (make sure this is fully charged and not been used as any kind of navigational aid) put our number in it now 01484599123
- Foil blanket
- Safety pins for race numbers.
We will be doing random spot checks throughout the whole day, anyone who does not have this mandatory kit with them will be DQ'd These checks could take place at HQ, at one of the aid stations, or just at a CP we set up on the day.
Race numbers must be pinned/attached to your race t-shirt/top or race belt, and any medical conditions clearly written on the back of your number. You will need to show your race numbers for the duration of the ultra and at prize giving.
Race results will be published within two days after the race ends, on the WRU website under the 'Event Results'. On the day results will be available from the Race Results centre - somewhere near the finish line. We may even email results to you but we can't promise this! It is your responsibility to visit the website if you want them in a hurry!
The prize giving will be in the event centre as you pass through the finish line.
