WELCOME TO MAN VS COAST
7th JULY 2018

Brand new from Rat Race, Man Vs Coast pits you against 20+ miles of the most famous coastline in the British Isles. Expect high cliffs, brooding moorland, picture-perfect beaches, crashing waves, big swell, rough-hewn rocks, awesome coasteering, water jumps, short swims, a few obstacles from the Rat Race inventory….get the picture?

This is one for the adventurer who wants to make a weekend of it. Bring your family, bring your mates. Stay with us at our dedicated basecamp and enjoy Cornwall in the height of summer. From our base near Penzance and with a stunning Start-line at St Michael’s Mount, the route will weave its way coast to coast from one side of the Cornish peninsula to the other, taking in a course that is exciting beyond belief. 

Welcome to Land’s End, Rat-Race style. 

* This is a running event, not a swimming event. You will certainly get wet. When there is full immersion we will issue buoyancy aids and have water safety staff on standby. In order to complete the event fully, you must be able to swim. But all of the swim sections are short and can be bypassed if you wish.

A subsidised £10 hire fee will be added at the point of entry to cover the cost of GPS tracker safety equipment hire.

This is a wilderness event in some remote country. For safety we want to ensure we can keep track of where you are. This system has the added advantage of your supporters being able to follow you online from basecamp or from the comfort of their armchairs at home.

Why have the extra fee rather than just putting up the entry price?

• No-one likes hidden extras. We are upfront about this fee. The fairest way for us to be fully transparent is to separate this cost out and explain it. The Processing Fee has discrete input costs independent of the direct costs that produce the event. We reserve the right to change this fee based on the processing costs at any time.

Why use the system we use?

• The online payment process is provided by Paypal so it is very secure.

• It offers the opportunity to pay directly from your Paypal account (if you prefer this to paying by credit card or debit card).

• It is the cheapest and best value solution we can find and it is tailored to the events you are entering. We feel it is very competitive in the marketplace, versus the fees charged by other professional event operators.

• It integrates with charity donation web sites so there is a quick and easy way for you to raise money and obtain your fund-raising discount, should you choose. –

This fee covers the costs of operating the following:

• The credit card and Paypal processing fees

• The IT development in building, hosting and maintaining the online entry system.

• The associated bank fees and insurances required to process the event registration fees

• The administration personnel costs of running the registration database

• VAT at 20%

Why add on a percentage rather than a set fee?

• Rat Race offer such a range of challenges that our price points vary massively. Therefore it is considered the fairest option that all customers are charged the same %age pro rata.

How can I save money?

• The processing fee will be less the earlier you enter (as it is calculated as a %age) so take advantage of the Early Bird offers to get the best prices across the board.
