What is the minimum age to take part in the event?
Participants must be 17 years of age on race day to take part.
What should I wear for the race?
Normal gym / exercise kit is ideal. You will be muddy and wet, so leave your new kit at home and throw on your old stuff! Trail running shoes are good, but if you don't mind sliding around a little, an old pair of trainers are perfectly fine. A change of clothes for the journey home, some warm kit and a plastic bag for your dirty kit are essential! Check out our blog post for further intel.
How fit do I need to be to complete this course?
The course has been designed to be achievable, whatever your age or fitness level. Rest assured, The Major’s hand-picked platoon of elite troops will be lining the course to support and guide you with a smile, yells of encouragement, and a helping hand along the way. They might even challenge you if you get too big for your boots! To get in tip top shape for the event, why not try a free BMF class?
If you have any concerns over your health, we suggest that you consult your doctor prior to taking part.
