There will be a shorter interval than normal between starts – about 30 seconds – but expect a butterfly loop early on to separate runners. All runners will run the same course with two loops, but the loops will be in a different order for alternate runners.

The following courses will be available:

  • Long: approximately 5km, quite challenging
  • Short: approximately 2.5km, quite challenging

All competitors take part at their own risk. You MUST be over 16 to take part in this event, unless you are accompanied by a parent or guardian. This is a condition of our insurance.
