coast to cathedral on the West Mendip Way
This event is run under an ARC permit

Recommended Kit

Teams are responsible for the safety of their runners and are reminded to take kit suitable for the weather conditions on the day, such as:
  • windproof whole body cover
  • map print here and compass
  • whistle
  • mobile phone

Which should all fit neatly into a small bum-bag that can be worn around the waist without much hassle. We suggest that each team make up one kit bag that can be passed between runners. The baton is a coloured streamer that can be attached to your bag.

You can print a map with directions for any leg of the route from here.

Relay Rules

The race is run as a 'hand-over' relay with teams passing a baton between a series of up to six runners.

Teams may only exchange their baton at the end of each leg, as detailed on the route maps.

If teams have not been able to pass the baton between all team members, due to needing to leave a checkpoint before their runner arrived, an official finish time will not count towards any prizes.

Team runners must carry the baton supplied by the event. Solo runners are not required to carry a baton.

Medical details

All runners are required to carry details of next of kin and relevant medical details.

We recommend this small form for this purpose to be printed out and carried by each runner.

Copies will also be available at the start.
