Does a team have to be all the same category?
Teams can be mixed categories, i.e. any mix of Run/Cycle, Walk/Cycle or Mountain Bike, but to qualify for team awards the team must all be the same category.
What happens if a team member pulls out before race day and no replacement can be found - can the team still enter?
Ideally teams will always have 3 members, but we would never preclude a team of 2 or even 1 taking part at the last minute due to injuries etc.
Does the team have to stick together on the route?
Individuals can go at their own pace and team position is based on the third member’s finishing position, not time.
How important are the supporters/stewards and what do they do?
Team stewards are very important for event safety and marshaling especially over such a long route. We need help for water stations, road marshaling, start registration and other jobs too.
Can mountain bike categories change from mountain bike to road bike at Melgarve?
Yes, mountain bikers can change wheels, tyres or bikes at Melgarve.
Can I visit Badaguish to see the place?
Absolutely – call us, we’d be delighted to see you for a look round and a cuppa!
