Last year we were forced to retire our old registration system which was very old and was causing us a lot of problems. We have been building a brand new registration system but this has been a mammoth task.

Last year we experienced problems with online payments being marked as fraudulent. This year we have decided to go back to basics and take payments by bank transfer or cheque. You will receive instructions on how to pay once you have registered your team.

Rules and Equipment

All teams and individuals competing in the event are required to complete a kit check before they set off. This includes (not exclusively) clothing, footwear, first aid equipment and navigation requirements. We will take at least one emergency mobile number from each team.

We have 20 checkpoints across the four routes. Each checkpoint is staffed by a team of volunteers linked by a dedicated radio network and can provide snacks, refreshments and aid.
