  • Checkpoint support – The day is split into 5 sections – approximately 5.5-7 miles in length, and at the end of each one we’ll meet you with your spare gear should you wish to change clothing policy, first aid provision and lots of food and drink to keep you going!
  • Safety and first aid cover – your in safe hands, your guide will be fully qualified when it comes to outdoor first aid, in addition we will have all the necassary skills and equipment to look after you if something goes wrong, at the end of each section.
  • Replenishment – Whilst it’s recommended that you carry some snacks and water on sections yourself, we’ll both provide and transport suitable foodstuffs and water/energy drinks and will have them waiting for you at the end of each section throughout the day.
  • Transport – If the worst happens and you can’t continue, through injury or extreme fatigue – we’ll take care of getting you back to where you need to be. We’ll also carry any spare clothing/footwear or anything else (within reason!) that you may want at some point during the day.
  • Event Pack  2 months ahead of the challenge day, you’ll get a guide on the route itself, an overview of the sections, tips for preparation and training along with other useful pieces of information.

We will be averaging around 3.5mph – a brisk walking pace for most, and this includes stops at the end of each section, so the emphasis is on keeping going, not speed! Think of walking briskly the climbs, jogging the flat sections and running the descents and you’ll end up with this average pace, or thereabouts. The pace will be dictated by the Run Leader.
