Logistics and schedule

N.B. This event:

- has no first aid or medical backup, but provides transport for retiring Unsupported entrants;
- welcomes support crews, and buddy runners (not pacers) one at a time, on foot only from 70 miles;
- has checkpoint cut-off times in line with an overall time-limit of 40 hours (i.e. to finish by 2200 hours on Sunday);
- is limited to 100 starters in total, first come first served. Places will not be allocated by lottery draw.

Note: Unsupported (tended by organiser) places are limited to 55 in order to achieve max 50 Unsupporteds by race day. Applicants holding out for an Unsupported place should enter on SiEntries as Supported (with own crew) in the first case, before contacting the organiser – an Unsupported Wait List will be maintained for those that get in touch, and places allocated on a one-out, one-in basis.

Competitor Rules

1. The full distance must be completed on foot, keeping, wherever possible, to the recognised towpath route.
2. All Competitors must notify Race HQ (Tel. 07778 550945 or 07780 685538) immediately on retiring (even if they have already reported this at a checkpoint) or if they drop behind a schedule in line with the cut-off times.
3. Competitors must reach all checkpoints by the closing times printed on the maps. They must leave within 40 minutes of arrival. (Ref. rule 4.) Competitors must reach the Business First car park (Br No 126) checkpoint at 70.6 miles within 19 hours 10 minutes, i.e. by 0110 hours on Sunday.
4. Competitors will be deemed to have retired if stopped for more than 40 minutes at any one time. Competitors may enter vehicles for warmth, rest and nourishment, but will be disqualified if the vehicle moves. On no account must that vehicle move. Any runner seen in a moving vehicle will count as retired, even if the intention is to return to the same place to resume, unless the vehicle is going to the aid of another entrant in difficulty.
5. All competitors must display their race number to the front. It will be recorded at checkpoints en route. The medical form on the reverse of the number must be completed including emergency contact name and telephone number.
6. All competitors must carry a mobile phone for calls to Race HQ; and have the financial means to sustain themselves in the event of breakdown of support vehicle.
7. All competitors must carry a foil ‘space’ blanket at all times.
8. Unsupported competitors must also carry the provided maps.
9. Unsupported competitors must have one kit bag only, clearly labelled. For overseas competitors, and in exceptional cases, a maximum of two clearly labelled kit bags will be accepted. Competitors must minimise the size and weight of their bag, bringing only what is necessary.
10. Competitors and crews must accept full responsibility for their actions (see Terms & Conditions).
11. Entrants must undertake to inform the organiser if unable to take part (see Pre-Entry Notes).
12. Buddy runners (someone who runs with the competitor) must not run in front of their runner, always beside or behind. If in front they will be regarded as pacers and pacing is not permitted in this event. Competitors may have only one buddy runner at a time and then only from the 70.6 mile meeting point, Checkpoint 5 at the Business First car park, BB12 6HH. Buddy runners must be on foot.
13. Walking poles are not allowed at this event for runners or buddies.
14. All runners and buddies must carry a torch, or headlamp, with spare batteries, and wear reflective clothing when on road sections at night.
15. Supported (with own crew) competitors must have at least one support crew member with a vehicle from the Start; and for the duration of the race.
16. All competitors must carry a cup for accessing hot and cold drinks at aid stations.
17. Sharps, any needles, scalpels, or other articles that could cause wounds or punctures to personnel handling them, must be locked within a suitable container inside kit-bags.
18. Buddy runners (someone who runs with the competitor) must not carry any food, water or other supplies for their runner, i.e. muling is not permitted in this event. Buddies must depart aid stations at the same time as their runner.
