The is a 100k race, however the distance will definitely not be bang on 100k, 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 and 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.

The cut off time is 14 hours and there will be aid stations at every 10 miles. Cutoffs will be in operation at every checkpoint (to be communicated)

Water stations are 15 miles apart on this course: 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.

We will also 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 November, it will generally be expected that it may be cold – please train in anticipation of this and take all necessary precautions to ensure your comfort and warmth on the day.

If you suffer from any medical conditions please ensure that you place a Red Cross on your race number before race day, and write your medical conditions on the back of the race number with a I.C.E. contact also.

Technical, dark....exhilarating. Despite having to DNF, I loved taking part in this one.
