Further Race Information

DISTANCES & PHASES You will have 2 hours to collect as many check points as you can on foot (approx 5k) and bike (approx 12k) and to do a short 1km kayak. There may be some special challenges along the way! 

TIMINGS & RESULTS  You will be given a timing device to record your time. Results will be based on those collecting all check points first and then time.

FOOT & CYCLING PHASES All check points are within Margam Country Park which spans 1000 acres. The terrain is very varied with gravel, stone, grass and tarmac tracks as well as some single trails. The park is hilly in places so expect some climbing and descending both on foot and bike

KAYAKING PHASE The kayaking phase will be around four buoys in the lake. There will be plenty of water safety, and we will offer support and instruction if required. All kayaks and kayaking equipment is provided.

ELECTRIC BIKES The use of Electric bikes is permitted, however you must register as non - competitive. This means you will still receive a race time but it won't be featured in the results. If you'd like to do this please e-mail us after you have entered.
