Checkpoints

There will be 5 checkpoints along the course on race day. You can expect plenty of smiles and encouragement and the usual ultra treats of crisps, fruit, bars, sweets etc. along with water, coke, squash and hot water for tea/coffee, as detailed below. Sanitary products will be available.​

Please let us know of any dietary requirements at the time of entering so that we can try to accommodate for everyone's needs. However, if you do have special dietary requirements, please ensure that you are adequately prepared with food options that you know work for you, as we may not always get it right or be able to offer exactly what you are looking for at the checkpoints.

It is important to note that the checkpoints should be viewed as 'top ups' for your nutrition during the event and should not be used as your only source of food/water. Always carry enough of what you know works for you and remember that there will be significant distances between the checkpoints.

Please note that these may be subject to changes.
