Fuel Stations at the Hoka One One Winter Trail Half Marathon
You are not required to carry your own fuel for the event, but we recommend that runners ensure that they are happy with their own personal fuel requirements prior to the race.
The race will start at 10.00AM.
The first 3 miles are flat and fast before you take your first hill in to the forestry. Between mile 10 and 11 there are some narrow trails and tacks - these areas will be fully marked and will be well marshalled. We advise you to please take care and be mindful of other runners at this point. Its all fun from mile 11 onwards - downhill into Margam Country Park.
Additionally we will have some large 'CAUTION - STEEP DESCENT ' boards on display too; indicating that extra care should be taken by runners in these areas, especially if we have had wet weather before and/or during the race.
PLEASE NOTE the route has been measured with more than one GPS system, the average was 13.4 miles. Let’s remember this is trail running and not road running, therefore the length is always there or thereabouts!
Prize giving for the 2016 HOKA One One Winter Trail will take place in Margam Country Park Castle (same location as registration). With prizes from HOKA One One, Power Bar UK and bespoke trophies by Ami Marsden. We will have more than £2000 worth of prizes to give away so don’t miss out!
