2021 Team List

( As of  April 21st)

We are planning for the race to go ahead this year, and everything is looking good!  


All teams planning to come are encouraged to get their entries in asap to help us plan ahead, with a 100% money back guarantee, or a place in the 2022 race, should Covid restrictions either stop the race going ahead, or your team participating.


“Inaction in the face of fleeting opportunity is a crime.” 

H.W. Tilman

(From 'Where Men and Mountains Meet')
