There is no compulsory kit for any of our ultra races. For the Fan Dance there is a list of compulsory kit. We do have a list of recommended kit which can be found by following the link from any of our event pages. This is a minimum and you are welcome to bring whatever you normally run with.
The 3 start groups are based on a mileage per hour
Walker start: 3 miles per hour (20 minute miles)
Main Start: 4 – 6 miles per hour (10 minute miles)
Elite Group: 7 – 9 miles per hour (>10 minute miles)
It is important that you do not start too early as the checkpoint and finish opening times are based on the above timings.
Your race number will be given to you at registration on day 1 of the event.
All our events (except 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.
Most of our events are run on clearly marked national trails or route marked paths. At all events you are given a route card. For some events we also provide OS maps with the route clearly marked. For all events you also have the option to download GPS route data.
No! We wait until the last person still running/walking has finished.
As part of your entry process you have the opportunity to take out booking protection insurance. This enables you to get a full refund if you have to cancel your entry. The XNRG refund policy is that we will give you 70% refund of your entry fee up to 1 month before the start date of the event. After this time we are sorry there will be no refunds or transfers to future events. Refunds will be to your booking credit card.
