THE MADNESS OF KING GEORGE
Sunday 27th August 2017 @ 8AM
KING GEORGE V MEMORIAL WALK, HAYLE, CORNWALL
1 MILE LAPS!
1/2 MILE UP THE ROAD!
1/2 MILE DOWN THE PATH!
LIMITED TO 75!
MINIMUM REQUIREMENT TO HAVE COMPLETED A MARATHON DISTANCE OR MORE IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS OR WILL HAVE COMPLETED ONE BY RACE DAY.
DO YOU HAVE THE JEWELS?
12 Hours of a half mile out to the bottom of Phillack Hill and a half mile back toward the swimming pool to turn around again and do the lap again continuously until the 12 hours is up.
The one who lasts the 12 hours with the most laps of a mile is the winner.
This is a predominantly flat course with only 19ft of elevation per lap. Possibly only due to the speedbumps o the road half section.
No cheating the course i.e, skipping between path and road unless instructed otherwise by officials or authorities.
No support runners.
Anything less than the full 12 hours is a DNF(This isn't like other events where you can put in as much or little as you like and pick up the same memento). If you have run 100k and stopped at 11 hours and 59 minutes then that's a DNF.
If you're still out on the course at the 12 hour mark then you can finish the lap you started. That lap will count toward your final total.
Going to the toilet on course is a DNF. There are portaloos for that.
Littering will result in a DNF. This is an RSPB and Hayle in Bloom area.(Please respect your environment)
You must stay on course for the full 12 hours unless you must take a toilet break. Breaking this rule will result in a DNF. You must rely on a mandatory kit and support from our crew to survive the 12 hours!
There will be a baggage drop but no access to your kit until your race is over through dropping out or completion of the 12 hours.
DEFERRALS AND TRANSFERS UPTO 14 DAYS BEFORE RACE DAY.
