Our coach service

We'll be offering a coach service to drop you off at the start or pick you up from the finish line. Tickets cost £27 each and you can book them through our online shop.

Coaches will run as and when they're full so you won't need to book onto a particular service - this also means you don't need to wait for your start time to arrange your travel.
