FAQ

General

What’s included in the entry fee?
As well as entry into the event, you’ll receive a finishers medal plus free digital images for you to share on Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere. We will also chip time certain races although this is dependent on the course layout among other things.

Why do we start in waves?
Each wave will have a maximum number of entrants and will usually set off at 30 minute intervals. Starting everyone at the same time can cause major bottlenecks, which is something we are very keen to avoid.

Is there an elite wave?
Yes, the elite wave will always start on the first wave of each race.

Are we timed?
That’s dependent on the race you’re entering. Some are but others aren’t due to the course layout amongst other things.

Where can I get photos of the event?
Digital images can be downloaded on our Gallery.

What age do I need to be to enter?
18 or above. There is no maximum age, but you are required to sign a medical declaration and consent form to confirm your fitness for the event.

Is there Parking?
Parking is available on-site for a charge of £5 per car (cash only). We would ask as many of you as possible to car pool.

Can I spectate?
Spectators are welcome, but please be aware that certain races will be restricted to Base Camp (where the course starts and finishes). Base Camp will serve food, drinks and provide shelter where possible. There is no charge to spectate.

Can I volunteer?

We do require a number of volunteers at each race. In return – you’ll get free entry to a future Judgement Day event of your choice. If you’re interested in volunteering for our next race, please click here and follow the instructions.

Will there be showers?

We’re working on it but not at the moment.

Will there be catering?
Yes, but please remember it’s cash only.

Will there water stations?
Yes, but the number of stations provided depends on the race you’re entering and the distance covered.

Can I wear a Go-Pro (or similar)?
Yes, but you do so at your own risk. We cannot take responsibility for any damage.

Can I get a refund if I decide not to enter or if I am injured
No, tickets are strictly non-refundable – including injury – as per the terms and conditions agreed to during registration.

Preparation

How tough is it?
We have varying distances from 6km to 21km, from beginners to elite.

Can I view the judgement day course?
No, we want you to prepare for everything and surprise you on the day.

How should I train for Judgement Day?
You should visit our blog and Facebook page or follow us on Twitter for regular updates.

What should I wear?
This is probably the one single question we get asked the most. Our advice is to wear trail shoes (no spikes or studs), running gear relevant for the time of year and a pair of gloves if you want to avoid blisters, splinters etc. Again, visit our blog for advice and reviews on clothing, footwear and accessories.

Do I need to be able to swim?
This depends on the course. Email us (below) and we will let you know.

What if I can’t complete an obstacle?
Hopefully one of your team-mates or a fellow competitor will help you. If you really don’t fancy it, then walk around it.

Is there a time limit?
No, but Judgement Day staff may have to decide if struggling participants are fit to continue.

What should I bring on the day?

A signed medical declaration and consent form which will be sent out via email 7-10 days before the event (download here), photo ID and some cash. A full change of warm clothes along with your running gear and a towel.

There will be food and drink available but please remember there is no access to a cash point, so don’t forget to bring enough money with you.
