Cut off times

At the drinks stations you can either refill your own bottle from our jerry cans (hand sanitiser provided) or grab a 250ml cardboard boxed water.

5km - no drinks station on route, no change. Water at the finish.

10km - no drinks station on the course, you need to be self sufficient. Water at the finish.

Half Marathon, Marathon, 50km - Drinks stations every 5km;jerry cans with water and high 5 electrolyte out on the course to top up your own supplies. Please apply hand sanitiser before using. Marshals will also wipe down the taps. Box water available at the finish.
