  1. Hi Justin
    Apologies for the delay in a response, I get so much spam messages, I just wait for them all to bunch up before deleting them all!
    So yes, buckle is now at 75km (say thanks to all those that did well last year!)
    start line times seem to always change however its something like:
    730 “start” but actuall 7.45 across the line
    15km start line closes = 13.45
    5km start line closes = 15.45
    9 hours finish line closes = 16.45

    Dont know how TM savvy you are, Yorkshire is very hilly and one of the tougher events to hit 60km +. It’s doable if you are ready for elevation (looking back at my strava last year was around 350m elevation gain per lap)

  2. Hi mate. Your timings sound about right and pretty much what I was aiming for. Also, depend on how strong a hill runner you are is onhow optimistic you’re being. Yorkshire has one large hill with a steep climb and much of the course is along the side of a hill so a lot of sideways running.
    Check the timings as I think we’re now starting a ltitle earlier BUT the 8 hours still stands, it just brings everything forward a little. I believe they have increased the mileage for the Infinity buckle to 70km, but to be hounest, as I would have only really managed that mileage at London South, I haven’t really been interested!
    Good luck and please say hi at Yorkshire.

  3. Hi Paul,
    It’s not quite the same as Tougher “per se” but similar. You have to ATTEMPT every obstacle (unlike tougher) and if you fail, you take the penalty laps. If you fail to attempt the obstacle or not do a penalty lap, your timing chip is removed and that is the end of your “official” race. you can go out for more laps, but they will not count. For example, my friend wasn’t able to do King of the Swingers and because he wouldn’t even go up onto the ledge and jump into the water, they took off his band. Everest became too wet for anyone to get up alone, so we just had to touch the base of it and take the penalty lap to keep the bands.
    Hope this is clear!

  4. Thanks, I have made a small amend!

  5. Hi Vince,
    Yes it DOES count towards legionnaire status. The only event that doesn’t is the “Half”.
