There are two types of people. Talkers and porkers. Which one are you? On the 7th of October, we’ll find out.

We have reserved the area of the carpark highlighted in red below. You do not need to pay for a ticket so long as you park in this area. There will be a start/finish area set up as well as a registration tent. You can park anywhere around this area.
7.30am- 8.30am Set up and registration
8.45am Race briefing at race start
9.00am First lap
10.00am Second lap
Repeat for 12 laps
You won’t get a bib without a completed disclaimer. Please print off, complete and bring with you. No disclaimer, no run.
We are not timing each lap. You simply have to get back to the start/finish area within the hour to qualify to start the next lap. The last (12th) lap is a race. Simple.
We will have a race progress screen at the start/finish area. This will also be visible online…
…is a good mix of some fields, concrete/tar road and nice flowing single track. There will of course be the odd little hill. It will be marked out with arrows and reflective tape for the night time section/s!!! Expect some shenanigans.
What we will provide
Some shelter, hot water, tea/coffee, toilets (public, in the carpark, 40p)… along with the opportunity to push yourself beyond what you think is possible.
We have a bespoke medal ready to present to each runner, it will be customised to reflect the number of laps completed.

1. You are responsible for yourself, healthwise, fitnesswise, equipment wise
2. Littering = instant DQ
3. Cheating = instant DQ
4. The route includes narrow paths which will be open to the public and the start/finish trail is a popular one with dog walkers. Priority has to be given to other users. Please RUN ON THE LEFT on these parts. The route also includes a couple of lane sections, whilst not busy lanes you have to be aware of traffic and give way. The roads are not closed.
4. Be kind
5. Be safe
6. Don’t be a dick
You must be in the pen at the start on the hour, not on the way to it but in it. This is finite, so don’t make us DNF you for being late. Once the bell goes on the hour you can’t go back to your support, you have to get out there.
These rules are set in stone. You are made aware of these before the race so that you have every chance to succeed, but they will be enforced to the letter. Please don’t put us in a position where we have to enforce them.
What you need to bring
You will be responsible for all your nutrition and gear. Think how far you want to go, work out what food and drink you will need then double it! Please note we can’t allow BBQs or any solid fuel heaters, just camping stoves etc. to heat food. We should have some hot water for all your Pot Noodle needs though.
Coffee and tea will available BUT you will need to BRING YOUR OWN MUG.
You must bring a head torch, spare and batteries. The 6pm lap will need a head torch. If you do not have a working torch for this lap you will be pulled, DNFd, ejected and rejected. No debate, no questions.
We won’t be doing kit checks, it is up to you but if we feel that you are not prepared (such as no torch in dark) and will be a danger to yourself or to others then we will DNF you, please don’t put is in that position.
We would recommend you bring a chair to sit in, bring a sleeping bag in case you get cold, think worse case scenario weather wise and plan for that, whatever the forecast says.
We understand that you may want to bring someone to help you out, patch you up, force feed you pot noodles and kick you into the pen each hour which is ok.
Parking maybe limited so again, please car share, competitors will have priority in terms of parking closest to the start.
See you in the carpark.
