There will be a mandatory race briefing 10 minutes before the races which all entrants must attend.
If you are racing the marathon distance you can also take part in the optional 50k at no extra cost. You will be given a time for both the 50k and Marathon distances. Make sure to let the organisers know that you will be running the 50k distance.
There will be a strict 7 hour cut-off time in place for Marathon entrants, in which runners must be within their final lap 5 hours and 45 minutes after starting. There will also be a 3 hour cut-off time for the Half Marathon in place.
All entrants must be 18 and older to take part in the event.
Race numbers are to be collected from Race HQ at the Caldecotte Arms. Please leave at least 20 minutes to complete this process.
While there is no secure baggage drop at the event, the looped-nature of the course means entrants are free to leave their bags at the start/finish as there will always be someone around.
Virtually all runners wear road shoes at the event as the route takes runners along the lake paths which are mostly wide, hard gravel bike/walking surfaces. There are some small short concrete parts as well as a few metres of grass/mud trail.
There will be an area for entrants to leave their own nutrition, but please note no energy gels or drinks will be provided by the organiser so it is up to the entrant to bring their own.
