Additional Information
During the registration process you will state if the round is to be support or unsupported. This information is not used to differentiated completion times, more to build a picture of the round attempt. For the purposes of their report, some members may state if a round is Supported/Unsupported. Clarification on what constitutes either is listed below:

Supported: Met at road crossings or on the course with gear/food.
Unsupported: Completely self-sufficient with no outside help in the form of another runner carrying or supplying gear/food/navigation. Moral support at road crossings is encouraged.
Winter Round: 1st December through to 23:59 on the last day of February.
