About The Donkey Drop Out

How stubborn are you?

A 4 mile loop on flat terrain and all you have to do is complete it in an hour. Easy right?

However, you will need to be there on the start line on the hour every hour or you will be timed out... The race keeps on going until everyone is timed out and the winner is crowned only when they complete the final loop.

The race lasts as long as you do.... until the last donkey drops out!

 

Here's a bit more info for those already signed up & those considering joining:

General info
• Transition & start/finish area will be the small training pitch
as you enter The Track on the left
• Parking is available past the transition area
• Toilets, showers & changing facilities are available on site
throughout the event
• Each competitor will be allocated their own space to store
everything they have brought along for the event
• Please respect other road users, while the course should
be relatively quiet there is a need to cross a couple of roads
• The course will not be marshaled most of the time so we
are relying on the honesty of the competitors
• There will be mobile marshals on bikes out on the course
from time to time to not only check on competitors’ welfare
but to also ensure the course route is being followed
correctly

The race
• The race begins at 10am on Saturday 22nd June
• Runners must be in the starting circle when the lap whistle
sounds to be permitted to take part in the loop
• Each 4.167 mile loop starts on the hour
• The winner is the runner to complete 1 more loop than the
2nd placed competitor
• If the final competitor fails to complete the additional loop
then there is no winner (by completing the competitor must
be in the starting circle for the following loop when the
whistle sounds)
• A 1 minute & a 30 second warning will be given before the
start of each loop
• Competitors must complete each lap on foot & without
outside assistance
• Competitors can receive help in the transition area only
• There is a 30 hour cut off for the race, if 2 or more
competitors complete all 30 loops then the 1st across the
finish line on the final loop will be declared the winner
• If competitors need comfort breaks they must be in the
starting circle when the whistle sounds so may need to go
once the lap has started
