"...it’s £100 a team, so a bargain!" Stuart Holloway, propsective entrant
Each team member will receive a Yellowhammer Challenge technical cap as part of their entry.
Teams of two to four. It's not a relay. If you want a medal, you must do the whole thing.
You decide the day - and the hour - of your start - but you must finish the same day - by midnight - to get your medal!
Charitable fund-raising is NOT required (but you might as well, eh?!)
Teams are self-sufficient - but must have a support crew.
No race markers - navigation required.
No marshals - you have to look after yourselves.
No timekeepers - it's self-timed (use GPS and Strava to prove your success on the course).
See (or hear) a Yellowhammer (bird) for additional self-satisfaction.
The Yellowhammer's song is traditionally rendered as 'A little bit of bread and no-cheese.' Perfectly apt for Operation Yellowhammer.
A donation will be made to the RSPB at the end of the event, to help conserve the 'red-listed' Yellowhammer.
