Please remember to wear appropriate clothing for the given conditions on the day. The trails can get very muddy with standing water and deep muddy puddles.

We advise you to carry your own liquids to stave off the dreaded cramps, it is recommended that you aim for self sufficiency. Trail shoes are recommended.


Your race numbers will be given to you at registration. Numbers must be worn on the FRONT during the run. Failure to have this in place on your front may mean a DNF on the official race timing. They must not be folded and must be pinned in all four corners – please bring your own pins! You need to write your name, any medical condition(s) you may have and an emergency contact number on the back of your race number. Race belts are allowed provided the number is visible to the front and is not folded.


There are NO water stations on the route. Please bring our own water if you require some. However, some ‘refreshments’ may be available along the way…


No changes will be allowed on the day. The race is full so we cannot allow entry on the day.


There is ample free parking at the race venue.


Free to use portaloo toilets will be available at the race venue.


If you have ordered a race t-shirt, these will be available for pickup on Saturday. You’ll need to quote your email address and t-shirt order number.

There will be a limited number of items for sale on the day, including t-shirts, hoodies, bobble hats and bottles.


The course is fully marked out and there are lots of marshals on the route to help you find your way around the course. The route starts and finishes in the Oakwood Theme Park carpark. The furthest point of the course is west of Blackpool Mill. Spectators are free to watch anywhere along the route. Expect… mud.


There are no cut off times for the race, so long as you are making good progress along the route we wont stop you finishing.


Race results will appear on the link below, in realtime, as runners complete the event.


All racers must abide by the countryside code whilst off road and the highway code whilst on the road sections.

All litter must be kept & disposed of once back at the events centre. Anyone spotted or caught dropping litter will be immediately disqualified from this race and all future sporting events. The countryside is beautiful & we need to keep it that way.

Remember we are sharing footpaths with other countryside users like dog walkers, horse riders and mountain bikers. Please offer common courtesy & do not barge your way past people just to get that extra millisecond in your race result. Behaviour like this could jeopardise future events and will result in disqualification if you are spotted doing so.

On route there are marshals/teams strategically placed for your enjoyment & safety. If you find you are struggling, or know of another competitor who is, please inform the closest marshal so they can communicate this to the Race Director back at HQ. There are also 1st aid qualified safety officers on the route.

In the event that you have to withdraw from the race after registering for any reason whatsoever, you must inform the race official at the finish line. We have to account for all runners who start the race and therefore if you do not inform us of your withdrawal the emergency services may have to be involved.

On the back of your race number you will need to complete all the details including any medical conditions you suffer from. This is for your protection and your benefit so please complete. We will be inspecting race numbers and those that have not completed the details will not be allowed to start.

Due to the fact that part of the race is on roads open to traffic personal music devices are not acceptable. This is for your’s and other’s safety so anyone found breaching this rule will be disqualified and fed to the wolves.

You will need to confirm at registration that you are (medically)fit and able to complete the course, it is your responsibility to ensure your safety on the course. This is not a 5k in the park, this is The Nobbler.


We’d like to thank our volunteer marshals, Oakwood, Bluestone and Natural Resources Wales for helping us put this event on. Without their support, we would not be running this event.
