Course Notes

Such a scenic run route, but looks can be deceiving! the relatively small tree roots will grow bigger as you tick the laps off!

  • Prior to the event the tree roots and any overhanging branches will be marked with orange paint
  • At night and when you get tired and drag your feet they seem to grow bigger!
  • WALK the hilly bits, only run up them if you are in 1st place, OR being chased by a bear 😉
  • It’s possible to do a 9 min lap on fresh legs, but on tired legs, think 18 – 25 mins
  • You pass the toilet block by the Boat House once per lap
  • You will be cheered and whooped at the turning circle every 1.1 miles, it’s hard NOT to run round that bit!
  • After 26 laps, it’s ok to ask how many you’ve done (every lap!), counting beyond 26 is not a requirement of entry
  • The video above was filmed out of Enduroman season, so don’t worry the path is well marked and there will not be any bikes on the run course
  • You will need a headlamp through the night
  • It’s ok to eat and drink on the move, but do not litter, there are bins by the boat house and also at the turning circle

The 1.10 mile run course is entirely closed to traffic, around the trails within the private estate. There is only a 25m stretch of tarmac, the remainder of the course is woodland paths and trails. The run course starts and finishes at the Avon Tyrrell Centre (Turning Circle). You will need torches both for the run routes during dark hours. (Single athletes may require lights for the run phase, Half athletes will not require lights). Athletes will run the last lap in reverse. This will give everybody out of the run course the opportunity to identify a finisher and congratulate them in the usual Enduroman style. It is an undulating course and athletes will have to contend with tree roots, low tree branches and narrow paths that will become slippy in damp weather. It is a tough course but feedback each year continues to show that there is enough there to keep the athletes interested inside this stunning private estate.

Safety

Bring strong bright lights for the dark night. The light is for you to see the road as well as being seen and it will give you confidence. Be safe and bright. You will need a head torch for the run, or alternatively carry your bike lights (For ultra athletes only).

Have wet gear as it could (WILL!!!) rain, wear sun cream during the day and be prepared for the night. Most athletes that drop out from the Triple / Double race do so between 2am and 5am so factor this into your training. You need to eat healthy substantial meals throughout the competition. Sports nutrition products WILL NOT be enough. Those that have completed an Iron distance race will know that the body starts to reject sugars after about 5-6 hours. This is the time when your body will try and convert fat to fuel. Keep hydrated with a weak sports drink throughout but remember that your body will crave salt and fat. This is because your body is depleted in these areas – so eat it. Train and fuel SMART!!!!

Testimonials

  • What’s special about Enduroman? The overriding feeling that the organisers want you to succeed. I, like many, came to Avon Tyrell unsure if I could complete the events I had entered. The phenomenal support from everybody there including supporters and fellow competitors both day and night helped push my limits beyond my expectations. This is not a organisation set up for profit but for athletes to realise their potential. Help, support and encouragement in a safe but demanding environment. Incredible memories guaranteed.

  • Without a doubt, the Enduroman Festival of Ultra Events, is one of the most exciting weekends of my year! nowhere else can you experience such a family/team spirit whilst taking on such tough events, pushing yourself to your personal limits with such a great bunch of people around you. Don’t just ponder, sign up to an event, you will not look back!

  • I first came across the Festival of Ultra at Avon Tyrell when following online someone doing the Arch to Arc. That got me inspired to do something bigger than the triple marathon I was already training for and so entered the 100 mile run.
    Spending hours upon hours in the company of amazing people rubbed off on me and the weekend has now become my favourite of the year during which I have been given the opportunity to accomplish beyond my imagination thanks to the fantastic team who run the events for us, people who I can now call friends.

  • Enduroman – Scary, Elite, Uber athletes, out of my depth, Oh my god what have I done?

    These were all thoughts going through my head in the 10 months of training leading up to my first foray into the Kingdom of ultra-triathlon with the Continuous Double at Avon Tyrell.

    As soon as I arrived at the venue I could tell, yes this was a completely different world to that of the “races” I have previously been part of. I instantly felt at home being welcomed by the team and other athletes alike. EVERYONE was here not just to achieve their own personal goals but also help and encourage every other person participating; no matter the event they were part of, get to that finish line. Edd’s comment at the race briefing about the crew “we are not here to impose strict rules on you, we are here to keep you safe and do everything we possibly can to ensure you get to that finish line”. It’s not very often you here that support in a race brief.

    What a Venue (yes it is tough, but stunning), such a great bunch of athletes and the best organising team you could ask for.

    So – Scary, Elite, Uber athletes, out of my depth? It couldn’t be further from the truth. OMG what have I done? Yes very true indeed as I know for sure that I HAVE to go back and participate in silly distances again as once you’ve experienced the Enduroman family there is no way it can be once in a lifetime.
