Photos will be available via our FlickR page here within 24 hours of the event finishing thanks to Chris Drew.

Shortly after the race you will receive your iTAB, engraved with your name and finish time in the post. This simply affixes into the recess on the back of your specially designed medal to commemorate your achievement for years to come!

There is 1 water station on the course (at approximately halfway for all distances); if you are able to bring your own refillable water bottle it would be appreciated as we are trying to reduce our single use plastic waste. There will also be plenty of water at the finish line.
