All distances will follow the same route but will start at different points and times along the route. As with all of our events, you will now have the option of using either a GPX route on your own device we will supply the route, we may introduce a tracker for the Ultra and the Marathon this will be decided closer to the time and will also be cost dependant) There will be no marshal's or additional signs on the course.
