Checkpoints

There are 16 checkpoints spaced between 5 and 12 miles along the length of the Ring O' Fire course. If you inadvertently miss a checkpoint you will incur a three hour time penalty, which will be added to your time at the end of the Stage. You will be disqualified if you fail to reach a checkpoint within the designated cut-off time.

Firelighter and Ring O' Fire follow exactly the same route for the first day and share the same checkpoints.

Please see the Schedule page for full details of check point locations and opening/closing times and more.

You can expect the following at our check points:
Drinks - water, coke or squash
Coffee/tea available at CP3 Wylfa (Day 1), CP10 Sea Zoo (Day 2) and CP13 Rhosneigr (Day 3)
Hot soup available at CP11 Newborough (Day 2)
Food - savoury snacks, fruit, chocolate, sweets and lots more - we'll ask what you like before the race!
Bacon or veggie butties, coffee and tea - CP13 Rhosneigr @ Sandy's Bar & Bistro
Gazebo (for shelter if needed)
Basic First Aid
Race Marshal to record your time

Please bring your own water bottle / hydration system and cup if needed for coke/water etc. We are not dispensing in plastic bottles or cups. This is to minimise litter-dropping on the trail and limit our environmental impact.
