General Information for the Long Eaton 50 Ultra on June 16th 2012.

Sorry for the delay in updating the site, this was due to organisational issues. I am pleased to say that the event will definitely be taking place with the same course, except for a minor route change in Duffield. It will be around 51.7 miles to run.
We are maintaining the price at £15/17, with a souvenier mug for finishers. There will be individual prizes as last year for the first male and female, and possibly for age categories if we attract sufficient entrants. This includes food at checkpoints and soup at the end.
We have set a limit of 75 entries, but in the event of us being swamped by numbers we may reconsider the viability of increasing this. The team relay will again take place with a maximum of 25 teams, and we have reduced the price to £30 for a team of 6.
The race has been awarded 2 qualifying points for anyone entering the Ultra Tour de Mont Blanc.

Over the next couple of months we will be updating the course instructions and maps to take into account any changes, and we aim to emphasise the harder navigation issues with selected notes and photographs. We will add canal bridge numbers and also indicate which names used are not on signs. For example we use farm names from the map but they may not be clearly named from the route. Please bear with us if it takes a while, there is a lot to check.
