The Highlander Last One Standing is a Silver Ticket Event where the overall winner/last one standing will gain entry to the UK Team for the World Backyard Championship in October 2024
The last one standing starts at 12 noon, runners will have 1 hour to complete the first 4.167mile loop and be at the start line ready to go on the hour every hour and so on. Any runner not finished inside the time limit and at the start ready to start again will be disqualified. This will happen every hour until there is only one runner at the start line, this runner will be the last one standing. This runner must complete a solo loop inside the time limit to be crowned the winner. All runners except for the winner will be an official DNF (did not finish) and will get a medal to prove it. Any competitor still in the race at 24hrs 100.8 mile will receive a Rocket Events 100mile medal.
This race is not about being the fastest! Remember at the start of each loop/race all surviving runners are on an equal standing.
Pacing is everything!
Though the course is not flat, it can easily be completed inside the 1-hour time limit, but you must finish every loop inside the time limit to stay in the race.
Runners will be allowed gazebo/aid station at the start/finish. More information on www.runyarocket.com
