Race Rules


The Ridgeway Challenge is held under UK Athletic Rules for Competition.  

All entrants must be at least 20 years of age on race day.




There is general rule 144 3 (a) stating that "pacing" by someone not participating in the race counts as assistance and is therefore not allowed.


This remains the case in the Ridgeway Challenge 86 Miles. Pacers are not allowed.  Athletes are liable to disqualification should a pacer be used.
