A single day 49 mile ultramarathon held on the Butcombe trail in the Mendip Hills. Starting at 7.30am with a 15 1/2 hour cut-off.
The route is mostly off road and takes in some beautiful running country and fantastic views as it criss-crosses the Mendips. It was devised as a walking trail many years ago and 2017 will be the second year that it's being run as a single day ultramarathon.
The route is mainly self navigable but there will be marshals as key points, the trail is way marked along much of its length but this can be patchy.
All entrants must have run a marathon since the 1st January 2016, this doesn't need to have been in a formal race, it could have been a 26.2+ mile training run. You will not need to provide proof of this, we trust you to tell the truth.
There will be a minimum kit list that runners wil need to carry throughout the race.
There is a maximum time of 15 1/2 hours to complete the race.
