Our event route follows Lady Anne’s Way from Skipton to Penrith with very few deviations, and only where logistically necessary for us or the environment. Our mission is to offer just the right level of support to achieve a finish, but equally so not encroach on your journey and encourage you to keep moving.
There will be a mix of major fully stocked checkpoints and smaller ones offering basic support.
You can expect a major CP roughly every 20 miles or so, with a full range of hot and cold drinks, soup, and wholesome food ‘nibbles’ both sweet and savoury. These major CPs will have toilets and there will also be space to sit down if you really need it, but we follow Joe’s notion ‘Beware The Chair’ so will encourage you not to take root in the warmth.
In between the major CPs, minor checkpoints will be sited at key locations and every 6-8 miles, providing fresh water, hot drinks and a friendly face, or two. They will also be strategic points for our safety monitoring and communications. We will be checking out phone signal, road safety, parking and other ‘facilities’.
We will move a ‘drop bag’ for you to two CPs. The logic behind this is to enable a shoe / sock change and maybe to ‘gear up’ for a night section, or two. We will supply you with your Drop bag which will be a 20 litre dry bag and limited to 5kgs.
