A TYPICAL MARATHON?
There arenít any cut-off times on the morning marathon!!! But you do need to achieve the one hour compulsory rest period to enter the dusk marathon Ė this isnít negotiable. The marathon route is a two loop course starting from your location at Holt Castle. Each loop is approximately half a marathon and your midway water station will be located within Holt Castle where your first lap completion will be recorded. At this midway point you will also have free availability of GU Energy Bars, 9Bars and Red Bull, tea, coffee etc. The terrain is mainly tarmac, generally on footpath and flat.
Will be based in a shared hall with hard floor, so you need to bring your own sleeping mat, bedding etc. Shower facilities will be available but on a booking system through URL staff. Or for an additional £110 stay in the Hartlebury Travelodge for 7 nights, which is just 15 minutes away. This will be on a shared basis (three in a family room which has one double and two single beds).
DOUBLE OR QUITS?
Thatíll be 14 marathons in 7 days! If the morning marathon isnít enough take the challenge of the afternoon marathons, which commence at 3.00pm. Note Ė there is a mandatory one hour rest period between each marathon. To enter the afternoon marathons you can choose to either pre-book or enter on the day. If you pre-book and donít achieve the mandatory rest time you will not be allowed to start the afternoon marathon and will forfeit your entry without refund.
Only 50 places are available for each race so book early to avoid dissapointment.
JUST WANT TO DO A SINGLE MARATHON, OR HALF MARATHON?
Not a problem. You can enter any of the fourteen marathons on an individual basis. For the half marathon you simply complete a single lap of the course.
