This event is CUPLESS so you need to carry a cup or other vessel to drink out of at the checkpoints. We don't believe in making you buy more plastic cups to save plastic so using your water bottle or soft flask is ok by us. We will have Jugs of water/coke/squash on the tables for you to fill up with. You will NOT be allowed to drink from a jug! We will sell some foldable cups at registration 5 each. The Stort 30 is a very pretty out and back 30 miles (15 each way) along the River Stort Navigation Channel in Hertfordshire.
A pretty out and back marathon mostly along an old disused railway line, very flat with mostly gravelled paths underfoot. There are a couple of sections that have the potential to be really muddy and wet and a small part of it that will be through the edge of the town of Dunmow. See out the year with a final marathon.
