Running Events Specific:
All Running Events
All our running events are going cup / bottle less meaning we will no longer have plastic cups or bottles on the checkpoints. The same drinks will be available on the checkpoints but they will be poured from large reusable containers.
This will save a huge amount of waste and prevent litter being left on the course.
Ideally you’ll carry a bottle and collapsible cup, at the very least you must carry a bottle / flask. The optional cup is ideal if you want a drink that you wouldn’t want to put in your bottle.
We hope you understand this change in policy.

Ultra
Entrants must have previously completed a marathon event; consider themselves a competent runner and capable of completing the challenge. Anybody unsure about this challenge should contact the Monster Racing team. This event is a serious undertaking and entering it should be done so only by those capable of completing the distance within the time limits proscribed. If you have any doubts about your ability to do this, then you should not enter this year. If you have any medical conditions these should be brought to the attention of the race director. We suggest that entrants with an on-going medical condition consult their GP or a medical professional prior to entering.
We require all entrants to carry a waterproof jacket and mobile phone – these will be checked at registration and at any time during the race. No waterproof jacket and mobile = no race.

Ambit
Entrants take part on the understanding that it is a strenuous 24hr race that involves running at night and when tired. They must understand the risks and be confident that they can complete the challenge.
Entrants understand that their personal details will be stored on computer. Entrants understand that their name, age group (if applicable) and gender will appear on the public list of competitors for an event when they enter that event. Entrants understand and accept that images/footage taken at the Monster Racing events may be used for publicity.

Monster Racing may be approached by the sport’s governing body for the personal details of the entrants entered into events. For example, if you are not a member already, they may need to know about you so that you can be insured by them. Monster Racing will not pass entrant details onto anybody except the governing body (BTF / UKA) or other authorities, such as UKAD.

Any entrant found to be serving a banning period from any sport that has signed up to the World Anti-Doping Agency code is also banned from triathlon, their entry will be barred without refund. Monster Racing fully supports the UK Anti-Doping; sport should be pursued for enjoyment and be fair.
