FAMILY ENTRIES

Get out and enjoy an active day with all the little people in tow! Our Family Entry is an affordable way to make this happen – and is intended to acknowledge the extra financial commitments that families with children face. Accordingly, this is not an entry option for just two adults. We’re sure you understand.

Family members may enter any event distance under a family group entry. A 15% discount off the total entry fees will be automatically applied when the following conditions are met.

Family group can consist of: 1 or 2 adults PLUS 1-4 children (under 18).

GROUP ENTRIES

Get 10% off with groups of 8 or more. Get in touch once you have at least 8 confirmed and we’ll get a discount code set up for you. The more the merrier on the coast this summer :-)

Email Mark once you have your group together.

While some of this gear may seem excessive, we ask you to bring it for your safety.
