There is an 8-hour cut-off time.  We will have a timing mat at 13.1 which will have a 4-hour cut-off. 


Will there be finisher's medals? 

Yes! There are finisher’s medals for all finishers.  


Is there a half marathon option? 

Unfortunately, not this year.  We will be considering options to add a half or possibly other distances next year but with this being our first year and with the logistics of trying to add a half to a point-to-point course, we'll have to wait and see what will be possible next year.
