Route information
This is a hard winter race. But it will be worth it!
This 55-mile (ish) winter ultra-run will test all your abilities as both your mind and body are placed under stress in this unforgiving environment.
Supported by the event team you will traverse a loop of the largest hills in the border region. This is a time when most livestock are brought off the tops and only the hardy feral Cheviot goat is left to fend for itself. This route, the majority of which is inaccessible to vehicles, will take you out into one of the last wild places in England where the population count per square mile is the lowest to be had. High up in the fells you’ll need to battle your inner self as you cross peat-covered hills, descend grassy banks and chug along the mighty border ridge with Scotland on one side and England on the other.
Please note that due to the variables involved on the course, the organiser often can’t confirm the final route until a couple of weeks before the event.
Every runner gets a GPS tracker for us to monitor progress and you've got 24 hours to get to the finish.
Only enter this event if you have ultra-running experience and are well aware of how to deal with winter conditions.

Registration
At the start of the registration process, members of the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team will ask to see your EMERGENCY SPARE CLOTHING IN A SEALED BAG and also your EMERGENCY SURVIVAL BAG. If you do not have both of these items they will not allow you to register. You DO NOT have to show them the rest of your mandatory kit, however, random spot checks will be carried out and if you are not carrying all the mandatory kit, you will not be allowed to start the race.
The emergency spare clothing is separate from any other clothing that you will be wearing or carrying for the duration of the race. It is only to be used in case of an emergency. The emergency survival bag has to be a bag that you climb into. Survival blankets will not be accepted.
At Registration, the organiser will provide you with a bag that will contain your Race Number, event t-shirt, waterproof map of the course and your Montane neckerchief. This bag also acts as your drop bag for the halfway point at Barrowburn. The bag is sufficient size for spare clothing, shoes and race food.
The organiser will issue you with your GPS Tracker which you must tape to the top shoulder strap of your running pack. This is to remain on until you have completed the race.
Aid Stations
There will be two aid stations on the course at 20 miles and 40 miles. As you arrive a marshal will guide you to your drop bag if you have left one. Drop bags will be located outside.
The first aid station is at the 20 mile mark at Barrowburn. This is an indoor aid station and will provide hot soup and drinks. There is a toilet located here.
The second aid station is at the 40 mile mark at High Bleakhope. This is canopy covered in a barn. Hot drinks will be available but there are no toilet facilities.
