Route information
It is at least 20 miles. But it might feel like 50. The exact distance will be announced as the event organiser reveals more of the route, but you should be prepared for no less than 22 miles with significant ascent and descent, some very steep terrain, possibly strong winds and some very salty sea air. This is a full day’s outing on rugged ground with the sea never far away and in multiple occasions, you will be in it too. Expect hand on rock scrambling, jumps, short swims and a solid outing in the legs on the run. A standard road-run this ain’t.

Event day logistics
On race day the Event Organiser will be providing a pre-event bus transfer from the finish line venue at Land’s End. This service will cost £12.50. Buses are allocated against demand and must be pre-booked when you enter or through your account login in the ‘add products’ section.
The bus will leave Land’s End Saturday and Sunday morning with buses leaving at 7am and 8am. Those in early waves should aim for the early bus to ensure there in good time, while those in the later waves should book the 8am service so they are not waiting around at the start line too long.
Registration is the day before the event

Did the 20 miles in 2019
Loved it, best sporting event I've done! Really great vibe, stunning scenery and great people. Lots of immersion - don't worry about your socks and shoes getting wet, just get stuck in! Would recommend taking a spare clean pair of socks though :)
