The Last One Standing starts at 10.00, runners will have 1 hour to complete the first 4.2 mile loop and be at the start line ready to go again at 1100, then again at 1200 and so on. Any runner not finished inside the time limit and at the start ready to start again will be disqualified. This will happen every hour until there is only one runner at the start line, this runner will be The Last One Standing. This runner must complete a solo loop inside the time limit to be crowned the winner. All runners with the exception of the winner will be an official DNF(did not finish) and will get a medal to prove it.  

This race is not about being the fastest! Remember at the start of each loop/race all surviving runners are on a equal standing.

Pacing is everything!

Though the course is not flat, it can easily be completed inside the 1 hour time limit, but you must finish every loop inside the time limit to stay in the race.

Savoury food will be available for runners during the day, pasta and soup at night and porridge in the morning(s). If you want to bring your own food/drink of course you can and you can set up your own tent/gazebo at the start finish free of charge for the duration of the race. 

There will be a qualified medical team on site to deal with medical emergencies for the duration of the event. The first aid point will be at the start/finish area. If you have any medical conditions or on medication at the time of the event please write your details on the back of your race number. The nearest hospital is less that 1 mile away.

There will be plenty of water at the start/finish area, if you need water on the course please bring your own container.

​Night time running..... you will need a torch/headtorch.

All runners in The Last One Standing ultra will get a Goody bag and a DNF medal. The last female and male runner standing, will get a Last One Standing Trophy..
