What happens if I no longer want to run the longer distance in the Twilight Friday Ultra?
If you are running and decide you want to run a shorter distance, you are able to step down to either the half or the marathon on the day.
Can I run with a stroller in the Twilight Friday Ultra?
Due to the length of the distances, strollers will not be allowed on this course.
I was looking forward to the novelty of running in the dark. Bought a head torch especially for the event and finished before it was even needed. A 6pm start was ridiculous for a 'twilight' event. Then they didn't have enough medals for everyone! Beautiful scenery but didn't deliver what was advertised.
