Timelord expected CP Arrival and Departure times

Timeloards are entrants who try their best to run at specific times – 9, 10, 11 and back of the pack 12 hours. Any novice ultra-runner or person concerned with navigation can simply join a timelord who runs at their own race pace.

Timelords will be conspicuous by wearing Electric Orange timelord tech t-shirt’s and have their hour marker flag attached to their back-packs. They will also be acknowledged during the Race Brief.

A Timelord will try to run at a reasonably consistent pace. The below times are a rough guide of where they will be when, in order to achieve their target times. Based on a 08:00 race start:

Please remember – these guys are all experienced ultra runners and have exceptional knowledge of the course. They have a really difficult task trying to pace their run to their allotted times. At the start they may seem to go off a bit faster than they should – but this is purely to avoid bottle-necks at the early stages.

  • CP1 at 9.30am, CP2 at 10.45am
