Information

24 hours - South....along the Offa's Dyke Footpath. How far will you get?

This Walk/Run Challenge was a big hit in it's first outing in 2021. We were able to put on a numbers-limited event, and are excited to bring a bigger and better version for 2022! The finish line is unique to you...at exactly 12noon on 15/5/22, 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. 

2021 Winner, Andy Mearns towards the end of his 24hr adventure! 

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. We will set up covered support checkpoints, where we'll have provisions and your drop bags for you, but all runners must have their support driver and vehicle, to collect you at the end of your race. Your support driver/team can meet you at any point and as frequently as you like throughout the event.

The event start and registration is located at the NOVA CENTRE, Prestatyn. Registration and Kit Checks shall take place between 10.30 and 11.30am for a 12 noon prompt, start.

The TEAM ENTRY has a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 members. Only 1 person shall run/walk 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. 

24 hours - where will you finish up?
