How does Run24 work?
You can enter the race as a solo runner, two runners (pairs), team 5 (3,4 or 5 runners) or team 8 ( 6,7 or 8 runners).
Start with the main race at 12.00pm, they then carry on running as many laps as they can for 24 hours. They may have support i.e. a helper to feed them on course or stop for rests and food when they wish.
Pairs & Teams
Start with the main race at 12.00pm, they then carry on running as many laps as they can for 24 hours, each member of the team must complete at least one lap. You cannot substitute runners or use runners not registered in your team.
Laps & Breaks
You can take a break anytime you like but always leave/enter the course at the correct point. You can carry on and do more than one lap or handover to your partner or team member.
The course is not lit but is marked with glow-sticks. It is compulsory for runners to wear head torches or carry a hand torch from 8.00pm, ideally both.
There are feed stations at the exchage point and at half way. Solo runners will also have an area next to the course where they can leave their own food and drink.
All runners have a time chip and each lap is recorded as you pass the exchange point (a real time screen will update the positions in each catergory so that you can check your progress).
Runners can set out on a final lap as long as they reach exchange before 12.00pm and this lap will count towards the final result.
Bring more spare clothing than you think you can possibly use.
Have shoes for all conditions and spare shoes for inbetween runs.
Buy the best most powerful headtorch you can, it makes a big difference.
Appoint a team captain to manage the team and make sure they are ready.
