What is an LTR Regular? To book onto our 'Regulars' you must be capable of running at a steady pace on tricky terrain for 2 hours or more. Unless you are a confident and frequent trail runner we please ask you to try our most accommodating 'Intro' run or at least one of our 'Tasters' first - we can then advise whether stepping up to one of our Regulars would be appropriate for you.

What's the route?

This special day is not to be underestimated, as such we have implemented a few contingincies for those who may not complete the full 50km. Along the route there will be three stocked check points where those who are struggling to maintain their pace will be able to cut their day short (transportation back to the start will be waiting). A slightly longer stop is factored in at the end of the 1st 25km for hot drinks, some real food & a comfort break. There is a cut-off time for our check points so it's important the group maintains the steady pace set by the guide throughout the day. We cannot guarantee you will be able to complete the entire route - if you cannot maintain the pace of the group, the lead guide may be required to arrange a pick-up to get you back to the start.
