Water and Aid Stations

In 2021, we will only have Water Stations (WS) due to the prevailing restrictrions and all participants are advised to be self sufficient in term of race nutrition. Aid Stations (AS) are hoped to resume in 2022.

At Water Stations (WS) there will be water refill points only.

Locations of AS and WS are as follows:

  • 19km Event: WS at 11km
  • 30km Event:  WS at 14.5km, WS at 22km
  • 46km Event:  WS at 14.5km, WS at 31km, WS at 39km
  • 81km Event: WS at 14.5km, WS at 31km, WS at 39km, WS at 44km, WS at 53km, WS at 66km, WS at 74km


Note: Between AWS at 14km and 31km on 45km and 80km routes there are some naturally occuring water sources which participants may choose to use at their own risk.

There will be No Drop Bag Facility for any of the events. You should carry all food you require,

Participants are reminded of the need to carry liquid with them through the race and to have a water container for refill at our aid and water stations as no containers will be provided.

Please ensure any rubbish you wish to dispose of is disposed in an appropriate place at one of the Aid Stations or the finish,
