Start time

  • Registration from 06:00AM onwards at the Memorial Hall, High Street, Newmarket, CB8 8JS.
  • The race will start at 07:00AM and 08:30AM, close to the registration location.
  • The earlier start time is intended for runners who expect to take between 14 and 15.5 hours to run the distance, or those who are dependent upon public transport at the finish. Faster runners should sign up for the later start.
  • Please note that the 06:45 train from London arrives in Newmarket at 08:05 (please refer to train websites for the latest travel updates). The train station is about 1km from the start location. Ensure that you pre-book with one of the many Newmarket taxi firms if you wish to save your legs and leave yourself with enough time to register and warm up before the start of the race.
  • Please register and drop your bags as quickly as possible to ensure you are ready to start at the scheduled time.
