DO YOU HAVE THE JEWELS?

12,24  OR 36 HOURS of a half mile out to the bottom of Phillack Hill and a half mile back toward the swimming pool to turn around again and do the lap again continuously until the 12 ,24 & 36 hours are up.
The one who lasts the 12,24 & 36 hours with the most laps of a mile is the winner.
This is a predominantly flat course with only 19ft of elevation per lap. Possibly only due to the speedbumps on the road half section.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DISTANCE OF EACH LAP IS ROUGHLY 1.06 MILES APPROX (ONLY THE AMOUNT OF LAPS YOU CAN DO IN THE SET TIME IS COUNTED. IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FAST YOU COMPLETE THEM. 6 MINUTES OR 60 MINUTES. A LAP IS A LAP. LEARN TO PLAY THE GAME ;)

RULES

No cheating the course i.e, skipping between path and road unless instructed otherwise by officials or authorities.
Anything less than the full 12, 24 OR 36 HOURS is a DNF(This isn't like other events where you can put in as much or little as you like and pick up the same memento). If you have run 100k and stopped at 11 hours and 59 minutes on the 12 hours then that's a DNF. Same for the others.
If you're still out on the course at the 12/24/36 hour mark then you can finish the lap you started. That lap will count toward your final total.
Going to the toilet on course is a DNF. There are portable loos for that.
Littering will result in a DNF. This is an RSPB and Hayle in Bloom area.(Please respect your environment)
You must stay on course for the full 12/24 hours unless you must take a toilet break. Breaking this rule will result in a DNF. You are allowed kit boxes which need to be labelled at left at the turnaround point. They will be accessible for the duration.
YOU WILL HAVE ACCESS TO KITBOXES ON THE COURSE BUT CARRYING A KIT IS MANDATORY.

NO PUSHCHAIRS.
