24 hours - South....along the Offa's Dyke Footpath. How far will you get?
The finish line is unique to you...at exactly 12noon on 16/5, 24 hours after the mass race start, the race shall stop and the Solo Runners and Teams furthest South on the National Trail, shall be declared the winners.
Starting on the North Wales Coast at Prestatyn, runners will journey South along the National Trail, with plenty of feed stations and break options along the way - until the 24 hours are up and a halt is brought to proceedings - with GPS trackers allowing us to monitor your progress and determine your finish position on the trail at exactly 24 hours. Drop bags shall be transported to checkpoints and designated road crossings, but runners must have their own transport from where they finish, arranged themselves.
The TEAM ENTRY has a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 members. Only 1 person shall run at a time, and changeovers can be made at any time, but each team member MUST cover a distance. The team event runs alongside the SOLO event, and has the same start and finish times. The advantage of the team setup is that support and transport are more easily arranged.
