We will transport your bags and any equipment from the start of each day to the finish.

If you retire and require transport from us you will be taken to the finish to be reunited with your bags and you can grab a cup tea or a bite to eat.

We can also return you to your car at either day 1 or day 2 start.


There are check points on the route and you will be required to stop at each and allow your chip to be scanned. More details of this will be provided in your race pack a few weeks in advance of the event.

We will take specific items of kit, food or drink to any of the check points for you. If you leave items at a check point they will be taken to the finish for that day so they can be collected.

We will try to reunite people with their kit, but we can’t promise not to eat any abandoned snacks!

Check point snacks


We provide a range of snacks and water / squash at most checkpoints. Details will be sent to you. You should not rely on food from check points as your sole source of nutrition.

When you finish, we will have a snacks i.e. beans on toast available at the Day 1 finish, on Day 2 we will provide an array of fine cuisine including such delights as peanut butter on toast or Nutella a-la-crumpet.

You can buy an Day 1 evening meal and or Day 2 breakfast when you enter or later if you change your mind. The usual pub based refreshments can be purchased at The Star but may not aid your recovery for day 2 but that doesn’t seem to worry some!


The Star inn at steeple have a camping field and this can be booked at the time of entry or later if you change your mind. You will need to bring you own camping equipment. Unfortunately we are not yet able to provide yurts or glamping options! You’ll be too tired to enjoy luxury.


Once you’ve finished, and if you need it, we can drive you back to either the Day 1 or Day 2 start. If you ask really nicely we could also drop you at local stations.

Transport is included in the entry fee but you might have a little wait.
