on-event & support

How do we find our way along the route?

You will be given a route map and we expect you to carry it at all times, it will be marked with rest-stops, hazards and distances. The route will also be clearly and fully signed with pink directional arrows and flags during the day  - meaning you never have to worry about finding your way and you can just concentrate on the challenge!

What happens if I or someone in my team has to pull out of the challenge along the route?

If you unfortunately have to drop out of the challenge, you will need to do so at the nearest rest stop if possible, where you will need to alert the event organisers, who will 'log' you out of the event. The rest of a team can still carry on.

Can I bring my dog on the challenge?

No - unfortunately we do not allow dogs to take part in the challenge as we cannot cater for them along the route and can be difficult to manage on the challenge. We do however think dogs make for great training companions.

What sort of shoes should I wear?

Walkers we recommend that you wear the shoes or boots you have been training in - so your feet are as comfortable as possible on the challenge - some people choose to wear sturdy trainers, whilst other opt for ankle height walking boots to give maximum support to your ankles and feet. It is a personal preference and we recommend that you experiment when going for training walks to ensure on the day you will be as comfortable as possible. 

joining as a team

How can we sign up as a team?

All teams entering need to be set up by a 'team captain' - this is the first team member who signs up to the challenge and creates the team. Then the additional team members can sign up by stating the team they wish to join and their team captain's name.

There is no limit to the number of participants you can have in a team - however we recommend that everyone is of the same fitness level and pace.
