There are two stages, Saturday and Sunday. The first stage is 60km and the second is 50km. Both stages commence at 07:00. There are checkpoints stationed approximately 10km apart where competitors can access water, snacks, shelter, and if necessary, medical support.
Competitors will camp at Race HQ at Newfold Farm in Edale on Friday and Saturday nights, where they will have access to therapist treatment, medical care and hot water. If competitors would like to camp on Sunday night after the race they are welcome to do so.
