RE: Moyleman 2016
In addition to RACE DETAILS, please read the following:
Respect the distance, the terrain, the countryside and your fellow trail-users at all times. We cross and run on roads for short sections of the race from Southease onwards.
If you need specific nutrition, supplements or medical supplies, carry them with you. If you need to access specific supplies along the route, please arrange for a friend or relative to meet you on the course. Many points on the route are accessible by road.
Please observe our gorgeous, Purple-clad marshals at all times. The course will be sign-posted using our Purple Arrow Logo.
IF YOU NEED TO STOP/ DROP OUT please report to a marshal. Some sections after halfway have access to roads.
We have first aid responders (SMS) on the course.

We have four bikes on the course. An advanced bike will go ahead to check the route. Two lead bikes will set off with the runners. These will dovetail to stay with/ close to the lead runners. A tail-gunner will follow back-markers, looking out for injured runners and collecting course markers. Be nice to our bikers.
There will be water stations as detailed in RACE DETAILS
Water will be served in open plastic cups. Bin bags will be placed at/ just after water stations – please use them if you can. Our marshals will pick up any strays once you’ve passed through.
CARRY WATER/ DRINKS/ ENERGY GELS/ SWEETS with you. There are long sections between water stations. You can top up water bottles at water stations and at South Downs YHA.

PLEASE DO NOT LITTER. Much of the course is through a National Park. Please respect the country code. Leave only footprints (and the occasional wee), take only memories, photos and your empty packets/ bottles.
REGISTRATION: Wallands School, Lewes
Registration opens at 09:00
Registration closes at 09:45
Race starts at 10:00 sharp (FULL Marathon) 10:15 (RELAY/ Dogs)
There will be safety pins available

Car parking spaces are strictly limited - there are plenty of free spaces at County Hall, 5 minutes down the road (access via Western Road, opposite the Pelham Arms).
COURSE MAP: Here is a link to our interactive Google Ma
We will have a large O/S map, course marked, on display at registration.
REFRESHMENTS: Our local charity Lewes Patina's cafe will be open, selling coffee, croissants and other sweet snacks at the registration hall. Please bring funds for this! Beer and Food tokens will be handed out at the finish. We have ale from Harveys and  food from Circa Events and massage beds at the finish.
BAG DROP: There will be two bag drop areas at the start.
All bags are dropped/ transported at owner’s risk.
PLEASE MARK YOUR OWN BAG so you can identify it on collection. We accept no responsibility for valuables of any description.

One: van will go to the finish at Harveys Yard
Two: car will go to South Downs YHA. This is for Relay Part One runners who will stop at this point (see RELAY RUNNERS below)
BRIEFING: a short runners briefing will be delivered at the start line, unless it’s tipping it down, in which case we’ll do this in the hall at 09:50 so that our Race Director doesn’t mess his hair up too much.
BOTH runners check in at registration to get your number.
After the race briefing, runner two should proceed to the halfway point at South Downs YHA (address below). Trains to SOUTHEASE leave Lewes station at 11:03 and 12:03.
Lewes station is a 20 minute downhill stroll from the start. The train journey takes 6 minutes. YHA is a 1 minute walk from the station.
Part One runners finished at YHA, trains leave Southease station to Lewes at 9 minutes past the hour. The finish is a seven minute hobble from Lewes station. NB: There is a café, warm shelter and WC at South Downs YHA
TIMING: we will have a dedicated timing team on the course, checking race numbers and recording individual times. We are using stop-watches - no chip timing
SPECTATORS: There are some great spots where friends and family can watch the runners. Here are a few, accessible by road or public transport:
- South Downs YHA - half way (café, parking, train station, WC)
- Firle Car Park (on top of Firle just before the Beacon) – around 16 miles
- The Trevor Arms, Glynde Village (pub, train station, WC) – around 23 miles
- Cliffe High Street, Lewes (near the finish)
FINISH LINE. The finish line is at the entrance to Harveys Yard (back entrance via North Court/ Harveys Way)
This will be clearly marked.
Repatriate with friends and family, receive your commemorative finisher’s gift and beer/ food tokens, grab your gear bag from the bag-drop van, get a relaxing massage or just wrap yourself in a foil blanket and sob.
There is a big car park next to Harveys Yard.
This is a tough, hilly race across a variety of surfaces. 
We know you know, we just wanted to say it one more time, just in case.
Plan well and enjoy the day.

RE: Moyleman 2016


Sadly one or two runners have been/ will be forced to withdraw from the race this year. This happens, and we're really sorry to hear that your plans have been scuppered.

We're offering the following deferment options for any runner currently registered who has to pull out between now and race day.

All runners can defer their place one year. Same race, same runner, for 2017 only. We will charge an admin fee of £10 per runner at time of re-application. This applies to full and/ or relay runners, per person.

If you can't run, but can offer your services as a marshal this year, you can defer at no charge AND claim your free pint at the finish. You will need to contact our chief of marshals at and confirm your availability. He will send you instructions. We will confirm your 2017 place after completion of this year's event.

The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph

Best of luck tomorrow!

Looking forward to being there one year and taking part in it if I'm fit enough or helping as a volunteer.

Saludos desde Almería.

Congratulations to you and all the organisers/marshals for another fine event. It certainly looks as if the weather Gods smiled upon you today. Bravo!
Run slow, run far.

We are surrounded by so many people who give up their time, their enthusiasm, their beer (thanks Harveys) to make this day the fantastic experience it is.  I am so humbled by everyone who gets involved.  One of these people is Fergus Kennedy, a professional aerial photographer who shot this for us... then went home last night to edit the footage so we could show it today.

There is more to be done

Yes, I have watched this more than once already - bloody brilliant!

Very beautiful video! I though of the loneliness of the long distance runner far from the madding crowd.

Congratulations on that fantastic tough marathon, a homage to our dear Chris Moyle!
