Enter The Race

Entries for 2018 now open. Deadwater will take place in 2018. After that you will have to wait until 2020.

Because of the size of some of the overnight campsites, we can only accommodate 50 runners in total, plus up to 10 volunteers. This makes for an exclusive event, with a unique atmosphere. Volunteers will earn £435 worth of credit to use on future Beyond Marathon events, including Deadwater.  £50 of the entry fee is a non-refundable deposit – see below. You pay the £50 (+ Eventbrite’s booking fee) when you register. The rest of the entry fee is payable via BACS or Paypal, and can be via standing order instalments. You will be sent details of how to pay the balance when your entry is accepted.
