Route information
COURSE
Run starts at 10:00. This is a tough undertaking, covering varied terrain including open rugged moorland, steep combes, boggy valley heads, bridleways, footpaths, tussock grass, a 75 metre swim and a 25 metre tunnel (alternative run routes around these obstacles are in place if required). We are very privileged to be able to run an event of this nature in this remote part of Exmoor National Park. To minimise erosion in this stunning area we are restricted to 200 entrants, the route has been specially selected and we would appreciate your co-operation by following the marked route.
COURSE MARKERS
The course will be marked in bright orange tape and flags as well as event signage at appropriate locations.

Spectator Info
SPECTATORS
Good spectators make an event and we’d love to see your supporters there cheering you on. Due to the nature of the event and the remote terrain it covers we recommend utilising our ‘Spectator Tour’ or specified spectator locations.
Let one of our team take you to some great spots to see the action. Please bear in mind though that the the entrants will be running so if seeing the finish is a priority make sure you head back in plenty of time. The quickest runners are back in just over an hour. Tour not for you? Take part in the family bogsticle course and enjoy the refreshments available from Little Van Rouge.
Spectators Guide
We wanted to make sure that when you bring your entourage, they get to see you overcome the challenge. We will be providing a spectators guide that will include best view points, map to spectator areas and more.

EQUIPMENT
All entrants need to be appropriately equipped to deal with the weather conditions on the day. The event may be in July but Exmoor often has its own ideas! Clothing needs to be appropriate for both running and swimming in the conditions of the day. For example, this could come in the shape of technical shorts and t-shirt or a Tri-suit. Footwear needs to be supportive and have sufficient grip to deal with the mixed terrain. Also, light enough to run and swim in. We recommend a technical trail running shoe with deep tread. Head to your nearest outdoor retailer for some useful advice.
FANCY DRESS
Is allowed however it must be appropiate for the terrain. We cannot allow costumes that make be unsafe in any of the obstacles. If you costume is deemed unfit then you will not be allowed to enter. If you are unsure then please do contact us.
ACTIVITY CAMERAS
Want to wear your action sports camera to record and relive your experience? We are more than happy for you to do this but it is entirely at your own risk. We cannot be responsible for the loss or damage of your equipment. Did you get some great footage? Share it with us via our social media channels for all to see! We’d love to see your adventure!
