Entry Information 

Entries will remain open for ONE WEEK then all team entries will be checked and team places will be allocated by ballot. When submitting an entry, the name/address you give should be that of the Team Captain. A Team Captain can  submit only ONE team entry - you cannot be a captain of more than one team! You will be asked to provide names of at least TWO other team members. If these are not provided your entry will be cancelled. If we catch you submitting multiple entries in an attempt to increase your team's chances of getting a place, ALL such entries will be cancelled.

All we need now are names, nothing else. Full runner information can be provided later (All names, dates of birth, mobile phone numbers, t-shirt sizes and medical information MUST be provided by midnight on Sun 15th October 2017. As a matter of runner safety, any teams not providing this information by the cut-off date will have their entries cancelled. In this instance, no refunds will be given...)

 

Event Information

Full information is available on the event website. The race starts and finishes in Jedburgh. Event parking is in the Lothian Car Park (TD8 6JQ) just off the A68 main road through the town. Race registration is in the Jed Thistle Pavilion right beside the car park, from 6:30am-7:45am. Changing facilities are available in the Pavilion, and runners may leave kitbags in the changing rooms during the race.

 

The race will be fully route marked. A GPX file of the route is available on the race website. We recommend trail shoes as over 30 miles of the course is off-road and several sections are usually quite muddy. The race starts at the same time as the ultramarathon and follows the same route. Relay changeovers are at the ultramarathon checkpoints Maxton and Rhymer's Stone.

 

Leg 1: Jedburgh - Maxton - 10 miles

Leg 2: Maxton - Rhymer's Stone - 7 miles

Leg 3: Rhymer's Stone - Maxton - 11 miles

Leg 4 Maxton - Jedburgh (Finish) - 10 miles

 

Please note that leg 3 is by far the toughest of the four race sections. It is the longest, and has the greatest amount of ascent and descent, going over the Three Peaks of the Eildons. Runners assigned leg 3 should take extra care to dress according to the prevailing weather conditions and should consider carrying extra layers of warm clothing and waterproof trousers. 

 

Compulsory kit: emergency foil blanket, waterproof top or jacket, fully charged and switched on mobile phone. ALL relay runners MUST carry these items at all times while running. 

 

 Random kit checks will be carried out and any runners not carrying the compulsory items risk their entire team being disqualified. Leg 4 relay runners leaving Maxton after 3:00pm MUST carry a head torch.

 

All team members will receive a tech t-shirt. All finishing teams will receive medals and goody bags. 

 

 Changing and showering facilities are available for all runners in the Jed Thistle Pavilion - please bring your own towels. We will be providing FREE tea/coffee and two choices of homemade vegan soup for all runners. 

 

Trophies will be awarded to the first female team, the first male team, the first mixed team (any mix of genders), the first veteran team if we get one (all 60+, any mix of genders), and the first non-binary team if we get one. Additionally, we will be giving out spot prizes to teams who catch our eye for whatever reason.

 

The relay race is open to all runners aged 20+ on race day.

 

There will be a post race get together somewhere in the town centre - the venue will be announced before race day. All runners, marshals, friends, family etc are very welcome so please come along and join the party. 

 

As ever, profits from the Jedburgh Three Peaks ultramarathon and relay race will be donated to various charities and local groups of our choosing. When registering and paying via EntryCentral there is also the opportunity to make a donation to the national charity we have selected, which this year is the Refugee Survival Trust. It's a Scottish charity, run entirely by voluinteers, providing small crisis grants to refugees in Scotland who are facing destitution. Please visit their website and read about the people they help and consider making a small donation.

 

Please note: Partial refund of entry fee available until Sunday 10th September. No refunds after that date. No deferrals. No transfers. And no grumbling about these conditions!

 

All teams MUST have motorised vehicle backup. A team MUST be a minimum of TWO and a maximum of FOUR people. We expect that most teams will be made up of four runners with each running one leg, however teams of two and three people are also permitted. Entry fee is still £68. Runners who will be doing more than one leg may choose whether to run two consecutive legs, or two separate legs with a break in between. All runners MUST 'clock in' with checkpoint marshals at the relay handover locations even if they are not actually handing over to another runner. 

 

A word from The Management: We are LGBT friendly. We are non-binary friendly. You can enter our race as female, male, or non-binary. If you are transgender, we are happy for you to enter our race and run in the gender category you identify with. Our portaloos at changeover points are gender neutral. Our male and female changing rooms and showers are communal, however private changing and showering facilities are available for any runner who requests them - just email us prior to race day to arrange. We are proud signatories of the Scottish LGBT Sports Charter and are fully committed to upholding all of its principles :-)
