The event will follow social distancing and hygiene guidelines and necessary operational changes to allow the event to happen are as follows,

A, Your tracking tag will be issued at the start. Please don’t lose it, and securely fix it to your rucksack or clothing before you start the walk with a length of string (which you must bring from home) so that it can easily be scanned at check points.

B, At checkpoints limited food will be available and issued to you by the marshal. Water/Squash will be available. Water bottles can be filled but only take what you need, we have limited supplies. Make sure you fill your water bottles at home and bring them to the start this will help us and you.

D, NOTE>>> We will not be providing transport for retirees at check points onward to the finish. Entrants should make their own arrangements for this situation using friends or family or taxi.
