Endure24 Camping Information and Advice

Opening times – 10.00am Friday until 12.00pm Monday. If you wish to stay overnight Sunday please e-mail us and we will make arrangements. (only portable toilets will be available as other services will be removed by the suppliers). 

Setting up camp – Please do not section off large areas of the campsite, you can send an advance party with your tents, they should place them on the ground ready for erection when you arrive or erect them for you.

There is not enough space for recreation areas, please do not enclose space for your personal use, we have limited space and it is required for camping. It is unfair to your fellow runners and causes bad feeling when people can see large areas without tents sectioned off for personal use. We will infill these areas. 

Parking is free and will be adjacent to the camping area. Please move your vehicle to the car parks as soon as you have dropped off your kit. Due to a small minority of people not removing their cars from the camping area we have now employed the services of a tow truck. We will lift vehicles left in the campsite to a farm yard around a mile from the event site.

The camping area will have serviced toilets and hot showers. There will be a signed drinking water supply close to the service area, do not take water from any other source. Please bag your rubbish and ensure it all goes into the large waste containers. There are small metal bins for BBQ coals and hot ash. Generators and open fires are not permitted at Endure24. Please BBQ off the ground.

Don’t forget two important things, a head torch for finding your way to the loo at night (non running family and friends will need one too) and a personal loo roll just in case!

There is a general buzz around the campsite for the whole event and throughout the night, we expect people to have fun but show respect for other campers. If you prefer quieter camping please use the western end of Field B.

Children and Animals

We welcome children to Endure and they appear to have a wild time running free for the weekend but can we just say that children are the responsibility of their parents and you should be aware that we are on a working farm and a temporary campsite. There are water hazards, trip hazards and barbed wire fences so please supervise your children at all times. Dogs are also welcome but must be on a lead at all times, please be a responsible dog owner when it comes to cleaning up after them.

Make sure you follow a few simple guidelines to ensure your safety at this event.

  • The camping fields will have zones marked out with stakes and rope – only camp in the marked out bays.
  • Please remove all vehicles from the camping area as soon as possible after dropping off your kit.
  • There are short stay car parks with easy access to the exit gates if you are not staying for the whole event.
  • Do not run vehicle engines in the campsite during the event, there is a very real danger to people’s health doing this.
  • Please find the location of your nearest fire point once you have set up – you do not need our permission to use this equipment but please let us know if you do.
  • Having set up your camp take a couple of minutes to look around and think about any risks to the health and safety of others.

Cooking  –  Spotting the danger signs of CO poisoning

  • Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless gas and is poisonous. In high concentrations it can kill swiftly. In smaller concentrations CO poisoning can give symptoms similar to flu or food poisoning. Look out for headaches, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness and weakness – but the best advice is to avoid any chance of being poisoned in the first place.
  • Never take a barbecue into a tent, awning, caravan or motorhome. Even a cooling barbecue gives off plenty of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO), which can kill.
  • Never use a fuel-burning appliance to heat your tent or awning. Stoves and barbecues are designed for indoor cooking not space heating.
  • Never run a gas, petrol or diesel-powered generator inside a caravan, motorhome, tent or awning. Generators are not permitted at Endure24.
  • Don’t cook inside your tent or awning. Don’t use any other gas, charcoal, liquid or solid fuel appliances inside a tent or awning. Gas-powered fridges and lamps, for example, also need plenty of ventilation to prevent them producing poisonous carbon monoxide. Tents and awnings aren’t generally designed with this in mind.

Sorry for all the rules, but we just want to make sure everyone stays safe.
