Timings and Cut Offs

As with any event of this magnitude, we must impose cut-offs to ensure the smooth running of the event logistics and some parameters for your athletic endeavours. Whilst the cut-off times will constitute real time limits for this event, we want to give you the very best possible chance of completion, whichever class you choose. Hence our cut-off times will be as generous as possible for a journey of this magnitude. For the Experts, you should plan on being able to complete this journey in 18 hours as a base goal.
