In simple terms competitors must complete the 4.1-mile loop on the hour every hour until only 1 runner remains.

The bell will be sounded exactly on the hour and if you have failed to make the starting area before the bell rings, then you will be disqualified from the event and will become one of the many DNF’s!

There will be only 1 athlete who does not receive a DNF and they will be crowned the champ!

All competitors will receive an event memento , a £10 food voucher, and access to fruit/sweets etc.

You will be able to set up camp for you and your support crew for the duration of the event. Should you decide to quit between the hours of 9pm and 9am you will need to remain on site so that traffic noise does not upset any neighbouring properties.

​You will need to get your pacing right, as go too fast and you are going to be hanging around at the start waiting to go again, but take it too easy and you may find yourself working harder than you need to, to make the time limit.

​The course is not flat and has approx. 450ft of elevation gain on each loop, saying that, it can easily be completed inside the 1-hour time limit. It is a mixture of farmland, single-track trail and woodland dirt tracks.

​​You must wear appropriate clothing for the weather, if the event team feel that you are not appropriately dressed you will not be allowed to continue. If you are tough enough to run all day and into the night, you’re going to need a headtorch and spare batteries.
