Most importantly there will be a bar for that well-earned post-event pint also.
There is no registration available on the Saturday or Sunday morning before the races. You must register on Friday. Registration will be open on Friday from 1400 – 2200.
There will be a mandatory kit list for this event. Your kit will be checked before you are allowed to Register. We have published the kit list from the 2019 event for illustrative purposes on this page here.
No. Dogs will not be allowed to accompany runners on the route or in the campsite. While many of us love dogs some runners and crew do not, and they complicate the event management. This event is not suitable for dogs for several reasons and would complicate the event support processes including medical rescue, our sweeper logistics, our pledges to farmers with livestock, hygiene where we are serving food, areas that are busy with traffic.
Solo entries are not transferable – you can’t give or sell your entry to anyone else. If you no longer wish to take part you can obtain an event credit to the value of your entry fee paid (terms and a fee apply) which you or another person can use towards next year’s event (or any other Rat Race event).
At the point of entry you will be charged £10 as a subsidised GPS tracker hire fee. This is a wilderness event in some remote country. For safety we want to ensure we can keep track of where you are. This system has the added advantage of your supporters being able to follow you online from our Event Village or from the comfort of their armchairs at home. By hiring this satellite tracker you accept the terms of hire and the costs of replacement is £150.
