The 24 hour CP locations are approx 43km and 75km distances respectively. Sleep is your call, whether you have a support team and bunk in a car for an hour, you carry a small tent and rough it or recce and find a place to stop for a bit when you are planning your race... The choice is yours.

You will be issued a GPS live tracker so we know where you are at all times and your friends and family can watch your progress in real time.

There will be circumference rings at respective distances. If your tracker pings a ring, your ribbon colour will change on finish.

If you're a minute over the clock back at the startline its sadly a DNF.
