Entry and Changes
10K races - more info
The 10K races follow the same course as the 24 hour run but are timed and placed separately. Please see the race info page for course details. The day 10K starts with the main 24 hour event at midday and the night 10k has its own start at 8pm but the 24 hour event will be in progress. The night course is unlit and you must have a head torch or torch to be allowed to run. There is no cut off time. You can enter both the 10k events and the 24hr solo or team races. You can wear both your 24 race number/chip at the same time as your 10k race number/chip for that one lap only and count the lap for both events – however ONLY 1 TEAM CHIP/NUMBER CAN BE ON THE COURSE AT ANY ONE TIME so if more than one team member is competing in the 10k event as well, only one team member can count it as a team lap and only if no other team member is already on the course.
Free parking is available in the sign posted visitor car park. Register at the registration tent on Friday afternoon/evening or Saturday morning by 11am for the day 10k or between 5:30pm and 7:30pm Saturday for the night 10k – please allow time to get into the site, parked and to registration as it will be very busy on Saturday morning. (full details will be emailed before the event with confirmation of all timings on.) The race is chip timed.
The age limits are 18 years for the night run and 15 years for the day run.
Entrants will receive a medal when they finish.
You are welcome to use all the site facilities. Camping is charged at £5 per person (over 16yrs) if purchased online in advance by 1st Sept – after this date it is £10pp. All adults camping who are not 24hr runners must wear a camping wristband.

At the event – Camping
All adults camping at the event are required to wear a camping wristband for the weekend. Runners in the 24hr race (solos and team members) get a camping wristband in their registration pack. Solo runners also get one extra wristband for a crew member. Anyone else aged over 16 who wants to camp will need to purchase a wristband, including those entered into the Day and Night 10k races, kids fun run and people staying in our bell tents.
Wristbands can be purchased online or at the event. If you purchase online before 1st September the cost is £5 for the weekend. After 1st September whether online or at the event, the cost is £10pp. We will be checking wristbands and anyone not wearing one will be required to purchase one so please keep them on all weekend.
When can I arrive on site?
Entry to the site is planned to be from Midday on the Friday of the event weekend.
Entry to the main camping field (General camping/solo camping/caravans/campervans) will close at 10am Saturday morning. Anyone arriving after this time will be directed to camp in the Mixed Camping area in the field adjacent to the main camping field, opposite the car park. You will still have access on foot to the main camping field and access to all facilities. This is to ensure that the main camping field is ready in time for the running events starting and to speed up entry for those arriving on Saturday morning.
Where and when do I register?
You will be able to register for the 24hr run, Day and Night 10k and collect camping wristbands on Friday 4pm-7:30pm and on Saturday morning before 11am.

There are no electric hook ups.
Can I camp on Sunday night?
Are cars allowed by tents on the camping field?
Are dogs allowed?
Are caravans/campervans allowed?
Please note – the only area to pitch a caravan/campervan is on the grassy field – there is no hard-standing ground. If the ground is very wet you may have difficulty getting off the field. Please look at the weather forecast before the event and make a judgement. We will do our best to inform you of any expected issues in the lead up to the event.
Are generators allowed?
No Petrol generators. Small diesel generators are acceptable however for the comfort of other people on the campsite use sparingly, they are not allowed between the hours of 10pm and 9am. (Please note: there will be generators running to power the onsite facilities for the duration of the event so please avoid these areas if you don’t want to hear them).
What do I do with my rubbish?
Is there anywhere for Solos to leave food and drink?
Can I have a BBQ/campfire?
This is subject to normal weather conditions. If the grass is very dry no fires/BBQs will be allowed die to risk of grass fires.
This will be strictly enforced so please ensure you read carefully and abide by these rules.
These rules apply to all forms of barbecues, open fires, fire pits, chimeneas or any form of open flame (except gas camping stoves). We will refer to all these as ‘fires’ in these rules.
- ALL people in your campsite must be made aware of these rules – we advise that you print out a copy for your camp.
- All fires must be at least 3m away from any tents/flammable materials.
- All fires must be raised off the ground so that they don’t scorch the grass. Please bear this in mind with barbecues in particular. No open fires directly on the ground – they must be in some form of appropriate vessel.
- There must be at least 2 full buckets of water in the immediate vicinity of each individual fire in case of emergency.
- The fire must not be left unattended at any time. This means there must be at least one competent adult (18 years or over) physically present/awake outside of the tent watching the fire at all times. Being inside the tent or asleep does not count. If this is not possible the fire must be extinguished.
- NO accelerants must be used on the fire in any circumstance either to light it or at any point used as fuel. This includes petrol, lighter fluid, diesel etc
- There must be no accelerants in the campsite area if there is a fire lit.
- Fires must not be lit along the perimeter of the run course as smoke directly on the course is a hindrance for our runners. Fires must be at least 10 m away from the course perimeter. If the smoke from your fire is deemed by us to be disruptive to runners we will ask for it to be extinguished wherever it is situated so we advise you to consider this when siting your camp/tent.
- The organisers or their representatives hold the right to ask for any fire to be either moved or extinguished if they see fit for any reason of safety or in the interest of the runners or other spectators.
