Route information
This is a coast path run, its uneven, slippery in places, sometimes exposed, and you should
expect stiles, gates, rocks, steps and hills. It is 95% multi terrain with a few short road sections where the path shares the public highway. The route is well signed, but while the coast path is defined along most of its length there are a few places where you could go adrift. This is a self-navigating and self-sufficient event, there will be marshals and check points at set locations, but you should not rely on others or the MudCrew team to be on hand to show you where to go! Unless otherwise instructed, avoid beaches and paths that look as though they lead to the beach. All Checkpoints have water and ample nutrition. Do not miss a checkpoint and be aware of the strictly enforced cut-offs. Leave no litter and take care – the route is precipitous in places.
What's included
Upon finishing all participants will receive a unique “survivors” medal that you can wear with
pride all evening long, while celebrating at the event village. Participants for the Plague will
receive a high viz. competition vest which must be worn as an outer layer during the event.
Competitors will also have the option of ordering an event running tee, event hoodie, event
technical vest and/or an event buff at extra cost, when they enter. Any clothing ordered will be
available at registration. Please be aware that any clothing not picked up at registration before 4pm on Saturday, will be released for general discounted sale.
