The competition is open to teams of ten from any setting (clubs / groups of friends / workplaces, etc.)

Clubs (or any setting) may enter more than one team, but a runner may only be part of one team from that setting.

A runner is allowed to run for multiple teams, so long as each team is from a different setting.

There is no discount for runners who run in more than one team.

Each course (stage) must be run by a different runner. A runner who competes with more than one team MUST run a different course (stage) for each team.

Each team must consist of at least three women and three men – an under 16 is also encouraged.

Each team must have a Team Leader who will be responsible for registration, administation, and results. Each team must also have a team name.

Runners choose their own route, but must plan it in advance to ensure the correct distance and off-road percentage are attained.

Off-road is determined as being unsurfaced and generally impassable to a wheelchair or buggy.

Competitors must record their run using a GPS watch or phone and upload results via Strava, Garmin, or similar.

All runners undertaking their course in low light or darkness must wear a hi-viz and torch.

Social distancing must be maintained at all times.

All participants run a their own risk

Entries cost £30 per team. All team members will receive a commemorative medal. After costs, all remaining funds will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Entries must be received by 1st December 2020.
