Optional Extras

You may have had a long drive or simply fancy turning up to chat with fellow competitors ahead of the following morning’s start line. Or both!

As per tradition, local brewery beer and cider (and tea, coffee etc. of course) will be available on Friday night as you arrive and gather in the marquee after registering, in anticipation of 2-days running, orienteering, and camping ahead!

But why cook when you could pre-order your pre-event evening meal from our event caterers?

  • Friday Night Meal – hearty main meal + choice of Wilf’s finest cake & custard + hot drink included – £8
  • Saturday Morning Breakfast – scrambled egg sandwich + large bowl of muesli or cereal with semi-skimmed milk + hot drink included – £5



It is also possible to pre-order the official ROC Mountain Marathon T-shirt (technical tee with bespoke 2018 course design) for £22.95. These can only be purchased in advance as they are procured to order.

  • T-shirt order deadline is Sunday 16th September
  • Food order deadline is Sunday 16th September

The above must all be ordered in advance via SI Entries – the same place you register for your entry into the event.

2017 T-Shirt design using the 2017 controls plotted for example – 2018 design will be similar (although not likely black!)

Joey’s Café is on hand with barista coffee/gourmet hot chocolate and more!
