Complete up to 78.6 miles (3 marathons) over 3 days by walking, running or crawling, pitting your mental and physical prowess against some of the wildest coastline in Britain.

Categories Each group is strictly limited to 100 participants as this is the maximum amount of people the event transport can lift in one move. You will be asked to choose which group you would like to start with when you enter online. Once a group is full it will close. The descriptions for each group are as a guide. G1 starts early in the morning so it is advisable for walkers to enter this group. Runners should enter G2 or G3. There is limited availability to move group once selected. If you really need to please email firstname.lastname@example.org and make a request.
G1: Walkers / Joggers. This group is for people who intend to walk and, or jog the route. Walkers will have to push themselves to achieve the check point cut off times but the challenge is certainly achievable. On day one of the challenge G1 will have a early start as its approx 3 hr round trip for the event transport to drop groups off at the start point and return back to the HQ to pick up the next group.
G2: Joggers / runners. This group is for people who want to run a bit of the course but also want to have a nice relaxing jog as well.
G3: Runners. For people whole intend to attempt to run the whole course but will probably end up jogging and walking just a little bit faster than G2!
