FAQs

How do I book camping or festival-only entry?

The farmer has kindly given access to his fields, overlooking the idyllic Hope Cove, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better location to wake up to in the south west. close to ideal swimming spots in Hope Cove, East Soar and Bantham Bay.

The campsite is suitable for up to 50 tents, parking and camper vans, as well as and serving as the fulcrum for all our trail events, which is ideal for spectators.

We’ll be offering extra toilet facilities, as well as a secret location (to be revealed shortly) for our speaker’s and comedy evening.

The festival site is at Galmpton, Kingsbridge, Devon, TQ7 3EY.

When and where is registration?

Can I alter my registration between races on the same day?

We are not taking on the day race transfers.

You can transfer to a different race, if space is available, but not after the Wednesday before the event. There is no partial refund if you are transferring to a shorter race and you will need to pay the difference if you are transferring to a longer race.

Can I get a refund or defer my registration to next year?

Sorry, we are not able to offer refunds. You can now defer your race entry up to 7 days before the race for a charge of £7. This will give you a code worth the full price of your entry and valid for 12 months for any of our races. This code can also be passed on if you find someone who wants to take your place.

Or we offer FREE deferrals plus expenses to people who volunteer to help marshal at one of our races. Contact us for more details.

Will the race be timed?

All our races will be chip timed using our own bespoke NFC chips timing readers designed by our race comms man Tim Mockford. Our timers will be working with our registration and timing provider www.webscorer.com.

Results will be available on the day and also on our website within a few hours. There is also a free results app for iPhone and Android. Just search for “Webscorer” in the Apps Store/Play Store.

Are there age group prizes?

Yes! We have some great prizes provided by our sponsors. There is a ‘one prize per person’ rule, so if the first overall finisher is a veteran, he/she will only receive the overall prize and the 1st vet prize will go to the first eligible vet.

Please note that the organisers reserve the right to reduce or exclude prizes if there are insufficient entries in a particular category.

Can I walk the race routes?

For all the running races you will need to run the majority of the time to stay inside the time limits. However, there is no reason why you should not walk the steeper uphill sections.

For the half marathon and less, you will be OK to walk all the way!

Canixers are welcome.

What are the cut off times for each race?

The cut off times are:

  • ultra marathon: 10 hours
  • marathon: 7 hours
  • half marathon: 3.30 hours
  • 5K and 10K: 2 hours

Do you provide a kit list?

Yes. This will be available soon in our race manual… watch this space.

What happens in the event of very bad weather?

The organisers reserve the right to change, shorten or even cancel the races in the event of extreme weather.

Can I run with my dog?

Unlike when this event was held on Dartmoor, we will be permitting people to run with heir dogs on a harness as per Canix rules. Our races are run under Trail Running Association Rules (part of England Athletics) or ARC Rules.

What kids races are you offering?

There are two kids races on Sunday morning: a 1k (2-7 years) and a 2k (8-11 years).

Older children are welcome to join the 5k (12+ years) and 10k (16+ years) races on Sunday afternoon.

It’s a secret!

Yes, there will be various catering options available throughout the day and between 5:00pm to 7:00pm a BBQ suitable for all diets.

Please note that this year, food will be provided on a cash basis (we have reduced the festival ticket price accordingly).

Do I have to camp?

No, you don’t. You can book a place for a race without camping and then book your own accommodation nearby (or return home if you’re a local).

Are camper vans and caravans allowed?

Yes. We do have limited space for camper vans but not caravans (but there are no hookups). The charge is the same as for camping.
