How long do I need to train for?This is dependent on how much exercise you do currently. We provide you with a 20-week training plan for both running and walking, if you are taking part over 2 days or non-stop, or a 16-week plan for doing the one day option. You will also be provided with comprehensive training advice to ensure you are in the best possible shape. Other than that we recommend regular, consistent training – give yourself enough weeks to train but don’t overdo it!What time do I need to get there?We recommend arriving 30 minutes before your start time. You will have chosen your start time when registering for the event. Will my bags be transported for me from start to finish?Your bags will be transported from the start to the finish point each day. If you are doing the event over 2 days you will collect your bags from the basecamp and then drop them back the following morning for them to be taken to the finish.If you are doing the Double Marathon non-stop your bags will go directly from the start to the finish. There is no option for you sending your bag to basecamp, please accept our apologies for this.Can my friends and family come and visit me along the route?Your friends and family are welcome to come and see you along the route, but we ask that they avoid pit stops as these areas are for participants only. A more specific breakdown of the route will be published closer to the event.Am I allowed to bring my dog?Dogs (aside from assistance dogs) are not permitted on the route as part of the event, due to the volume of people on the trail and the challenging nature of the course. Participants will do a lot of training in the run up to the event, and we cannot ensure that dogs have the stamina to complete the route or be responsible for them.
