We will transport your bags and any equipment from the start 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 will also return you to your car but from the finish only.


There are check points on the Ultra 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 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!
