The Tandem is a challenge event open to runners and walkers with a time limit of 10 hours, the event is a pair event with a mass start, before your team splits to their respective routes, one team mate takes the East Route, the other the West Route.
The success of your team will be on choosing a team mate of a similar pace to reach Newton Under Rawcliffe aka 'the reunion checkpoint' to complete the last 8mls of the race together as a team. You will not be allowed to abandon your team mate.....it must be done as a team.
Entry fee is £50 per team. 16 years minimum age.
Registration will take place from 08:00 to 08:45 with a mass start at 09:00hrs.
Cut offs will apply at Newton Upon Rawcliffe Village hall where all competitors must have left by 17:00hrs if intending to continue.
Both routes are around 28 miles long and have around 3,500 Ft of elevation.

This is the minimum that must be carried and it is recommended that spares are also included.
Each participant will be asked to sign to say that they have the full kit requirement. There will be a random check during the event and anyone found not to be carrying the mandatory kit will be withdrawn from the event.
It is also recommended that participants have OS Locate and Ant Three Words loaded onto their mobile phones.
This is a self navigation event so it is expected that entrants will be competent navigators with both map and compass. It should be borne in mind that due to the time of year some participants will spend time in the dark.
A suggested route will be marked on a map at the start. Participants can pick their own route between checkpoint locations as long as they are all visited in the correct order and public rights of way are used. Each competitor will have the CP locations printed on their number and these need to be clipped at each one either by the competitor or CP Marshall.
There will be snacks and drinks at some of the checkpoint locations and a hot meal and drinks at the finish.
All participants who finish The Tandem as a pair will receive a badge and a memento of their achievement.
Maximum of 50 pairs. No entries on the day.
There is no participant parking at Goathland Village Hall, public car parks within the village should be used.
Dogs welcome on leads!
