Info: New entries for this event closed on Saturday 19th February 2022.
Saturday March 5th 2022
The route is clearly way-marked on the day so very limited navigation is required. The nature of the event follows the tranquil and scenic waterways most of the way ('Cuckoo Way' and the 'Trent Valley Way') so this also keeps the route simple. The route is 90% trail with only some minor roads/tracks along the Trent Valley Way to link waterways. The event has four well stocked Aid Stations.
All finishers receive a HOBO Pace medal with the race engraving and a race T-Shirt, plus finish refreshment (often soup).

As things stand the event is on. We 100% intend to keep the event on if allowed - albeit with social distancing measures.
Our plan is to have everything in place 6 weeks before the event. Worst case scenario if it’s known / refused permission at that point so that it can't go ahead it gives a good spell of notice for everyone.
If it can't go ahead in March 2021 it will be postponed to a later date in 2021 and if that is not possible then deferred to 2022. If we have to cancel you will get a choice of a 70% refund or free deferral to the next event date. We are sorry it is not the full amount refunded, due to costs imposed on us to protect the events for future years it is necessary in order to survive the Covid-19 period.
Please note if you cancel it is also a 70% refund as standard. You will be warned on the deadline to cancel and receive this refund, as standard this is 3 weeks prior to the event upon when no refunds can be made.
