DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE?

In a word, yes. It is expected competitors will be able to follow the custom made Harvey's East Devon Round map. However, the course will be marked with the principle that where it is a continuous stretch along one path do not expect to see many signs, whereas where there are intricate turns through villages etc., the route will be marked. A GPx file is available.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DROP OUT?

As always ideally any drop outs will  occur at checkpoints. From here transport can be arranged back to Event HQ. The race also has an emergency plan if required.

BAG DROP

All solo runners will be given the option of a bag drop at Checkpoint 5 at Foxbeare Farm. (EX14 9RZ)

OUR TEAM WILL NOT HAVE A CAR WITH US

The Event centre is less than 2 miles from Honiton Train Station on the main London - Exeter line. I will ask this question regarding transport upon entry, but will also check on the friday night at registration. I will be asking those with cars to see if we can help out those that don't, and this will be finalised on the friday night.

DO WE NEED A DRIVER?

Not necessarily. I did the Fox Ultra in Surrey in April this year, where our team of three moved the cars to the next changeover point. It could potentially be a long day for a driver, but teams may decide this is easiest.

I DON'T WANT TO CAMP

No trouble at all, there is loads of accommodation options nearby in Honiton and surrounding area. Have a look at https://www.visitdevon.co.uk/

WHAT PRIZES ARE THERE?

There will be spot and position prizes on offer. These have all been donated from local companies and are from local food and drink producers you will pass on the route, these include Otter Brewery, Dalwood Vineyard, Otter Dairy, Honiton Wine World, The Holt restaurant, Toast cage and patisserie, Royal Oak tearooms, and also Honiton Sports Shop, and The Ultramarathon Running Store https://www.ultramarathonrunningstore.com/

1-01.jpg

GETTING THERE

The Event HQ is at Offwell Village Hall (EX14 9SE), in the village of Offwell, just off the A35. It is less than 2 miles from Honiton and the A30. Honiton has a mainline trainline on the Exeter to London line, and Exeter airport is less than 15 miles away.

CAN I BRING MY DOG?

Unfortunately not, and that is coming from someone whose day job is working as a vet. The village hall grounds have a strict no dogs policy. I would be able to recommend a campsite only a few miles away which would happily take dogs if needed

WHAT IF I NEED TO PULL OUT BEFORE THE EVENT?

I am more than happy to offer a deferral system for the 2020 event, but can't offer refunds due to expenses already incurred. To be eligible just send me an email anytime before the 4th of May.
