The 3.3 mile off-road loop means your race can be just over 5k or even over 60k and anywhere in between. You decide how many laps you're going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit.
If you're looking to cover a marathon distance you'll need to complete 8 laps and a half marathon will be 4 laps.
The course is suprisingly lumpy, the ground is mixed with grass sections and stone pathways. Trail shoes will be needed due to the grassy hill!
3.5 mile loop
The course is over a varied terrain. There are sections on mown grass, crushed stone and concrete paths. The mown grass sections are on short hills so if it's wet trail shoes are recommended. We will post pictures on social media in the lead up to the event to help you make the correct footwear choice.
It's obviously good for the environment to reduce plastic use and general waste. Yes, you wont break a world record having to stop to fill a bottle of water or carry a hydration pack but over a marathon distance it would probably add less than a minute to your time. We will have water, isotonic drinks, tea and coffee and real Coca Cola for you, but to be clear - we wont supply disposable cups for drinks. If you'd like to purchase a foldable cup you can purchase on with your entry, at our merchandise store and on race day at the event.
