Supporters are welcome anywhere out on course, with the exception of Hale Lane Aid Station.Please note, nothing must be handed to or received from runners out on course or in the field, that is deemed as crewing.
There will be a dedicated team of race medics available throughout the race including a static first aid team at the start/ finish check point and a roving team within the Woods. If you suffer an injury or accident that warrants direct medical attention, the medics will be on hand to provide you with exactly that. Contact numbers and full details of what to do in an emergency will be given to you in the pre race information packs and again at race registration. Due to the nature of the course ie. some remote and far from roads, the medics may take some time to reach you, or potentially be out of contact tending to other runners. In those instances you should contact the emergency services on 999 AS WELL AS the race medics.
99% of the course is on trail, therefore trail shoes are advised. There are sections of trail which can become very muddy in wet conditions. The course takes a number of steep ascents and descents, many of which will become hard going in wet conditions, particularly as the race progresses. These sections must be negotiated carefully in both the dry and the wet. Runners must carry the following mandatory equipment at all times.
