It is our duty to manage our relationship with each other and the Earth. Therefore:
we are a sachet-free race. Water stations will have refill options and we encourage you to carry your own (a 250ml bottle should be sufficient). If you don’t have, you can buy one when you enter or on the day (stock availability depending). There will be limited re-usable cups at each aid station and these will be kept for the race leaders.
We will not provide medals, except to those that pre-order. Medals and their wrapping are often cause of great litter after the race, and once the memories fade. Please pre-order! Late orders may be available at a premium price.
Those taking 3 or more hours on the marathon will finish after sunset, and possibly in the dark. We encourage you to have a torch or headlamp available. Pre-order one with your entry, or buy one on the day (stock availability depending).
