How to Get There
This 3.28-mile lapped course is comprised mostly of tarmac and grassy paths which are fairly flat. To reach the marathon distance you will have to do 8 laps. Four laps for the Half Marathon.
When do I get my race number?
You'll pick this up on race day morning from the race base camp. If you're taking part in more than one day then please keep your number to use on other days.
Are there time limits?
Yes, six hours to run as many laps as you can. You can finish at any time within the time limit and your final distance will be recorded along with your finishing time. Only complete laps within the 6 hours will be recorded or you must have left the aid station for your last lap by 5:59:59 after the start. Any runner completing 26.2 miles will have completed marathon distance and will count as a marathon finish for the purposes of the 100 Marathon Club, if you complete over 27 miles then you've completed an ultra.
As long as you finish one lap of a challenge event then you'll receive an official finish time and medal. With timed events there are no DNFs as long as you complete one loop.
Do you have secure baggage facilities
No. We 100% suggest that people leave their belongings in their cars which will be parked just a few yards off the running line. If you don't have a vehicle then we'll have an area around base camp to leave a bag.
Trail shoes? Road Shoes?
Road shoes, its 95% or so on decent surfaces.
Is the course closed to the public?
No. We are using a network of local footpaths and trails and is shared with ramblers, dogwalkers, horseriders and cyclists. Runners do not have the right of way and need to be considerate of other users of the land. Please don't litter, we'll have a bin at the base camp and there are bins at various places along the routes.
Can I use an ipod or mp3 player on the course?
Yes. Though please be aware that you are running on public footpaths with the general public so make sure that you pay attention to farm vehicles, cyclists, people, dogs, horseriders, wildlife and so on. On a couple of the routes there are road crossings to be aware of too although there is no actual running along roads involved.
