There is no minimum qualification standard required to take part in Beyond Trails event. However for the 55km distances we do advise that participants have some experience of long distance events, and ensure that they have trained and prepared adequately as you will be expected to be self-supported for much of the event. You should only enter either distances if you are ready to train adequately or have achieved significant distances in the past.

We may limit the number of entries available so do enter early to avoid disappointment.

Unfortunately, no entries can be accepted on race day.

As with all trail and ultra-running events, it is important that you wear appropriate kit - and test your kit out on a long run/walk prior to the event. You should be prepared for all likely weather conditions and carry with you the minimum kit required. And remember to train with the gear you plan to race in!

  • Consider the following:

  • Shoes - comfort/cushioning, lightweight, adequate grip for multi-terrain, some of which may be muddy.

  • Socks and underwear - comfort, able to wick away moisture

  • Legs & upper body - consider the potential of changing temperatures and the potential for wind and rain.

  • Race pack & hydration vest - comfort is key but also consider how much you want to carry with you, and ease of access whilst on the run.

    For the minimum kit required, see the kit list FAQ.

Yes, there will be toilet facilities at both the start/finish, and at (or very close to) the check points. Public toilets and some portaloos will be available at various locations.

We have a flexible policy for transfers, however we are unable to offer any refunds or deferrals. Please read our withdrawal and refund policy here, for more details.

If the event is cancelled we will endeavour to stage the event at a later date. If you are unable to take part in the re-staged event, you will receive a refund (minus a £5 admin charge). If the event cannot be re-staged at a later date, we will automatically process a refund of participant’s entry fee, minus a £5 admin charge. We will also refund any iTab orders purchased at the point of entry. All refunds are subject to a £5 administrative fee which covers some of, but not all, of the costs we have already been committed, such as fees charged to us to process the original booking, staff time and supplier costs, and third party payment providers. This is very much in line with other event and ticket providers across the industry. See event terms and conditions for our cancellation policy.
