What to wear

Trail shoes, available from Fitstuff. 

The ground is rocky in parts so spikes may not be suitable.

Come prepared for steep ascents and descents, running on sandy and stony trails and single tracks.

Drop in on the guys at Fitstuff for all your off-road trail running needs.


For 2018, the route has been finalised. Over 1000ft of climbing for those doing 1 lap. 

Those doing the 21k, will do the chosen route 10.5k twice.

As these are such tough courses we request that anyone under 16 years of age runs with a parent or guardian.

Please look out for black arrows on a luminous yellow back ground. If you don't see an arrow after 150 - 200m from the last, you have gone wrong. Don't continue on hoping you will see an arrow. Please turn around and retrace your steps.
