Ensure that you are in good health and that you do not have any illness that will hinder your ability to complete the event. 

It is your responsibility to monitor your health and condition during the event and to withdraw from the event if you are no longer fit enough to continue.


You must carry your own Mandatory Gear at all times during the event. Random gear checks will be performed during the event. 

For the sake of fairness to all runners, a 30 minute time penalty will apply for every item that is missing. 

For on-course gear checks, this time penalty will be served at the location of the gear check so a runner will not be able to proceed on course until the time penalty is served. 

During this time, the runner must arrange for the missing item(s) to be replaced or they will not be allowed to continue on course even after the time penalty has been served. 

For severe breeches of mandatory gear or failure to comply with the requests of event marshals, the runner may be disqualified. 

Where it is not feasible to serve a time penalty on course, the time penalty will be added to the runner’s overall race time. The breech will also be listed within the results spreadsheet.

If you pass an injured runner or a runner who is obviously struggling on the course, please stop to help them. 

Keep a record of how long you stopped to assist, notify the timing staff ASAP at the finish line and they will organise to adjust your time accordingly.

Any withdrawal must be at a checkpoint unless you are assisted from the course by the event Medical Team.

To withdraw at a water station:

  1. Notify the checkpoint staff that you are withdrawing from the event.
  2. Complete and sign the checkpoint withdrawal form.

After you have withdrawn, transport will be arranged for you in designated evacuation points back to the race central. 

If you withdraw from the event at any other safe location and are unable to go to the nearest checkpoint to complete the withdrawal form, you must immediately phone the Event Safety Team phone number (listed on the back of your race number) and state that you are withdrawing from the race. 

They will want to know that you are healthy, the extent of any injuries you have sustained and that you are at a safe location such as back at your accommodation with someone to look after you. 

If you can’t continue to the next checkpoint and need first aid / medical assistance on the course, phone the Event Safety Team phone number (listed on the back of your race number). The Safety Team will arrange to retrieve you.



We recommend that you arrange your own personal accident insurance, ambulance cover and income protection insurance before participating in the Event to cover any unforeseen personal costs you may incur due to ambulance trips, medical expenses or time off work due to injuries sustained whilst participating in the Event. International participants should take out travel insurance that provides cover for ultra-trail running events.


The Event Organisers may cancel the Event due to weather conditions, safety considerations, terrorism or ‘acts of god’ and that in such circumstances the entry fee will be non-refundable as long as it supported with valid and official evidence .
