How old must participants be to enter the Excalibur Marathon?

Participants must be 18 years of age or over on the day of the race.

Do I need to have done fell/mountain running before?

All participants will need to sign a disclaimer to say that they consider themselves physically fit enough to take part in such a demanding event. We strongly advise that all participants have some experience of running or walking on steep terrain. Individuals must carry the essential kit on the day and be a competent map reader although the route will be clearly marked and supervised by marshals throughout the course.

Do I have to raise sponsorship?

It is not a pre-requisite to enter Excalibur but if you would like to raise money that would be great. Claire House Childrens Hospice formerly organised Excalibur and the new organisers still support the charity. Alternately feel free to raise money for the charity of your choice.

Where can I stay near Moel Famau?

There are numerous places to stay locally and the best way to find somewhere is by going to www.visitclwydianrange.co.uk

Will there be hot food available at the end of the marathon?

Yes, there will e hot food available at the finish for you to purchase from the Original Catering Co from Mold.
