Got something on your mind? We might be able to help you here:
Do I need to register in advance?
Yes. All participants must enter in advance using our online booking. For registration info please see above.
Will we receive a map of the route?
You will be sent the map as part of the runner information pack around 1 week prior to the event. There will be a map of the route on display in the registration area. The route will be well marked but in the event of any issue refer to your map. The route is well sign posted with marshals at key points.
Are there Age Limits for Participants?
Yes. All runners must be 17 or over.
Should I bring my family?
Why not. They can walk around the course to see you or hang about at the start/finish area for your return.
Can I bring my dog?
You can bring your bog to the event but not out onto the hills. Our insurance is now very strict about not allowing dogs out on the event.
What Shoes Should I Wear?
Trail or fell running shoes are highly, highly recommended. Conditions under foot could be slippy including roots, rocks and plenty of mud..
Can we stay the night before?
There are plenty of places to stay in the area should you be travelling from further afield. Have a look at Longframlington, Wooler or Rothbury on Google for B&B’s. Tomlinsons Cafe and Bunkrooms is a good shout.
Do I need a support team?
No. We will man the event and make sure you get round OK. You will need to bring essentials such as a kit list/compulsory items mentioned above.
What happens if I drop out?
We encourage anyone to try as hard as they can but there is no point in going beyond your limits. Injury, fitness or even a family emergency may mean you have to leave the event. If this happens on the course please go to the nearest checkpoint/marshal and let them know you are dropping out. If you only go to one checkpoint please try and make it the registration area as this is the final count of who has finished and left the area. If you don’t then we’ll presume you are missing and go on a man hunt! Always sign out of the event.
