MudCrew presents : The Arc50
The Arc50 : 50mile Winter Coast Path Ultra.
The Arc50 is a 50mile footrace with competitors running in challenging winter conditions.
The Arc50 is a point-to-point race from The Minack Theatre, Porthcurno to The Eco Park, Porthtowan taking in 50miles of stunning and dramatic Cornish coast-path. By passing Land’s End it will complete an Arc around the extreme south west tip of Cornwall. The race has a strict 15.5 hour cut-off with additional checkpoint and safety cut-offs on route. Competitors will need the ability and experience of being self-sufficient for long periods of time in potentially extreme weather conditions.
The event has been awarded 3 points towards UTMB qualification.
As safety is our primary concern, competitors will need to carry mandatory kit at all times and will be subject to a kit check at registration and random kit checks throughout the event. We would strongly recommend and advise the use of your own support crew. The cost of entry is £93 (£95 unaffiliated), which includes £15 for the use of a compulsory GPS tracking device which allows race HQ (and friends and family) to track your progress online.
The race starts at 08.30 am on Saturday 2nd February 2019 and competitors will be bussed to the start area from the race HQ at the Eco Park in Porthtowan. TR4 8HL. Grid Reference SW 696 468.
Although it follows a way-marked route, this is a self-navigation event and ONLY suitable for runners with some ultra experience. The route follows the cliff path and the terrain can be arduous and follows the cliff edge in places. There is an entry requirement of at least a 50km finish. Also bear in mind that the later part of this race will be running in the dark at night and you should ideally have had some experience of night time running prior to the event. We reserve the right to refuse an entry if we believe you do not have the right level of experience to compete in this event safely. If this is the case we will refund any monies paid in full.
All competitors will receive an event beanie at registration and all finishers will be awarded an exclusive MudCrew Arc50 medal.
