EVENT RULES:

Each team is to have a team captain and a navigator.  The team is to consist of a minimum of 4 or a maximum of 6 and all are to start the event to be eligible for any of the event prizes on offer except the prize for most money raised.  If a team starts complete and any other member drops out then a 1 hour penalty is given to that team. Teams can choose their own route, providing their route goes through each checkpoint, or follow the organisers official route.  Teams can be all male, female or mixed & minimum age for all team members is 18 years..  When checking in to the checkpoints, teams cannot move on unless all team members have checked in. All teams taking part are to finish together as a team and this will be the time of when the team completion time is recorded.

Whatever your ability, you are welcome to enjoy the 40k route, or a shorter 30k route at your own pace.

The aim is for everyone to enjoy taking part by completing the course whilst taking in some of the best views in the Brecon Beacons.
