For those of you who have run before, we are situated above Black Rock, near the start of the out and back section of the old route. From here we will join onto the old route which will be largely the same, with one or two tweaks.

Rubbish Out On the Course: We have special permission from the National Trust, the Somerset Wildlife Trust and Mendip AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) to hold these events around Cheddar Gorge. Please respect the fact you are running in such a beautiful area and do not drop any litter! If you can run will a full gel packet or drinks bottle, please run with it empty until the next Drinks Station. We reserve the right to give out time penalties to runners who are caught littering, and to disqualify repeat offenders. Thank you for understanding.
Cut off Time: There is 3hrs time limit for runners to start the 2nd lap of the marathon. Each lap is 13.2 miles but GPS reception is patchy so ple do not rely on these too heavily to trck your progess. There is no time limit for the other distances.
Race Numbers: No race numbers are being posted out, all numbers will be available to collect on the day.
Food & Drinks: We have a drinks and food van for the August race, please consider supporting the people who support our event (rather than the big coffee chains in town... :-) )
Parking: It will be busy in town, please consider car sharing if you have this option.
