How it works
Participants run as many main or short loops as they want within the 6 hour limit. After each lap they come back to the HQ where their card will be stamped. There is also the popular refuel station at the HQ with all sorts of drinks and food for participants to enjoy!
The main loop is 5.2 miles. The short loop is 0.9 miles. This will enable those who wish to cover a more specific distance. For example, if a runner wants to cover the marathon distance, of 26.2 miles, they can run 5 x 5.2 miles loop and 1 x 0.9 mile loop allowing them to accomplish their goal.
The latest you can start the main loop is 14:45 or 5.25 hours after the start, whichever is later.
The club house will be open throughout the event selling teas, coffees and beers. Don’t forget to bring some money and treat yourself after the run.

Medical Attendance, Refunds, transfers, Illness, Injury etc.
Qualified first aiders will be in attendance should you require any medical assistance, both mobile and at the finish. Please speak to a marshal if you need assistance. We regret that once applications have been processed we cannot refund fees to runners who do not eventually take part. Like all events, entry fees are used to hire the venue equipment etc. Therefore, we do not issue any refunds after entry. If you are ill or injured, then you should not run for your own safety. For insurance reasons you cannot give your number to someone else to run in your place. Swapping numbers will result in disqualification.
