Bonus Prizes

Once again we are offering a fantastic £1,800 of bonus prizes for Record Breaking teams and pairs.

  • Target times for 2023
  • £300 for any open or mixed team to break the overall course record/adjusted target time of 5:45:00 (record 5:34:46)
  • £300 for any ladies team to beat the ladies record/target time of 7:05:00 (record 7:02:11)

We have set target times, based upon the existing course records and adjusted for distance changes. In almost every case, the target times are slower than the existing records (which were set in winter conditions). We want the targets to be fair and achievable.

Leg Bonus Prizes

There are also £100 bonus prizes for any pairs that manage to crack the record/target time for any individual leg.

  • £100 for record breaking men's pairs
  • £100 for record breaking ladies's pairs

We have set the target times to be fair and achievable and, in almost every case, slower than the existing record. For instance, the leg 3 record of 32:23 was set by such an outstanding pair of athletes that it is unlikely ever to be broken...Unless a certain pair of fell running olympian siblings have a crack.

Target times for the legs in 2023

  • leg 1   open 1:09:00   ladies 1:22:00
  • leg 2   open 0:54:00   ladies 1:05:30
  • leg 3   open 0:33:30   ladies 0:42:30
  • leg 4   open 0:59:00   ladies 1:11:00
  • leg 5   open 0:49:00   ladies 0:56:00
  • leg 6   open 1:04:00   ladies 1:17:00

So, the challenge is there, we've put up the bounty, it's over to you now.
Good luck.
