  12. Entrants leaving the Wheat Beck checkpoint after 3:30pm will be required to take the 26 mile route, straight back to Osmotherley.

We ask our checkpoint marshalls to report all entrants who appear to be carrying no kit, and they have every right to withdraw anyone they feel is putting themselves in danger, or obtaining unfair advantage by carrying nothing. Basic kit is for your safety, please obey the simple rules to ensure the event continues in a manner fair for all.
