Route: A safe 6.55mile course which allows competitors the option of dropping out whenever they wish. The route will be fully signed and marshalled with first aid and water stations provided. We have very kindly been given permission to run on local farm tracks owned by Jim & Alex Pace and David Botting to whom we offer grateful thanks. Please respect their property. The route is over tarmac roads, good concrete farm roads, reasonable farm tracks and approx. 300m of rutted, unmade track. The ground can be uneven and difficult in places.

Lap control: You will be required to register at the lap control point after each lap you complete.
Breaks: There is no stipulation on the number of breaks taken, when they are taken or for how long within the constraints of the time limits and cut off point.
Shelter: There will be an area set aside where Challengers can rest in comfort should they want to which will be protected from the elements.
Refreshments: There will be a continual supply of drinks and snacks throughout the Challenge plus a hot meal for all Challengers when they finish.
Parking: Car parking will be available. Please ensure that you park in the official Challenge car park which is close to the start. Please try to keep vehicles to a minimum. If you or your friends arrive late, or leave whilst the Challenge is in progress, remember that challengers may be on the road, so take extra care.

Use these water stops even if you do not feel thirsty at the time and especially if the weather is warm. Once you begin to feel thirsty, it is already too late – do not allow yourself to dehydrate. Safety vehicles also carry water.There will be toilets at the Control Point.
