Eating, drinking and sleeping

  • I have specific dietary requirements

    If you have specific dietary requirements please let us know on your entry form or email us. We will then let the catering staff know at each location to ensure that there is an option for you.

  • Is there much water at the checkpoints?

    Enough for everyone to fill their bladders and bottles.

  • What food is at the checkpoints?

    Our checkpoint food is famous and you will not go hungry out on the course! We provide a variety of savoury food (sandwiches, nachos, pretzels, sausages etc) and sweet food (cakes, biscuits, sweets etc) at every checkpoint. You can provide us with a drop bag for specific Check Points if you have special dietary requirements.

  • What do I need for the overnight stops?

    For the overnights you will need a sleeping bag, sleeping mat, wash kit, towel and comfortable clothing to wear in the evening. We also recommend ear plugs and eye pads.

  • What are the facilities at the start and finish?

    All our events (except the Fan Dance and the Pilgrim Challenge) have shower facilities at the finish. All our overnights have excellent facilities for showering, sleeping and eating. At all starts and finishes there will be the option to have tea / coffee and snacks.

  • Can I bring my dog?

    Dogs are very welcome to accompany you on the route, although we can only have a maximumof 10 competitors with dogs at each event (email before entering to check). Unfortunately we cannot accommodate you at the overnight locations, so you will need to make your own arrangements for accommodation. And, runners accompanied by dogs are not eligible for prizes.
