When Will I Receive My Tickets?

Once you have registered through our website you will receive an order confirmation immediately via Eventbrite. This email will contain your ticket.

I am unable to make the event, will I get a refund?

We do not give out refunds for event registrations. We can transfer you to an equivalent event and this attracts a £10 transfer administration fee.

Transfers must be completed 4 weeks in advance of the event. Contact the admin team if you wish to transfer at info@thesfexperience.co.uk

Is there car parking at the events?

Parking will be available at all our events. Details are within your joining instructions.

Do I get a medal at the end of the event?

Yes every finisher at our events receives a custom designed medal to commemorate their achievement along with a certificate of completion.

Do I have to supply my own boots and bergen?

Yes all participants must wear their own boots and rucksack / bergen and also bring the necessary kit to make up the weight for their category.

We would recommend that you train with your equipment ahead of the event so that you can ensure it is comfortable and that your boots are worn in to avoid injury and discomfort on the day.

Ahead of the event you will receive Joining Instructions which detail mandatory kit along with an example bergen packing list to help people pack appropriately and hit the weight for their category.

When will I receive my Joining Instructions?

Joining Instructions for each series are sent after the previous season’s events have been completed.

This is to allow us to adapt and amend our kit lists and information appropriately, ensuring that we’re taking feedback from each set of events and improving our service and information we send to you.

Once they are released we send the Joining Instructions in weekly batches to new registrants. If you have not received your documents please check your spam / junk folder before contacting us.

Where can I stay?

With the exception of our SF Boot Camp we do not provide accommodation and it is the responsibility of participants to make their own arrangements.

For events in the Brecon area there is a campsite close by: Grawen Caravan and Camping Park

There are also lots of hotels in nearby Brecon and Merthyr Tydfil, including a Premier Inn and Travelodge.

Do all your events require navigation skills?

No, The Fan Dance and SF10 Race events do not require any navigational ability and are well marshalled routes on paths. You will be given a route map in your Joining Instructions and on the day.

Only Point to Point requires participants to navigate themselves around the route.

What type of training should I do?

We would recommend a mix of cardio and circuit training as well as getting yourself out on the hills with your kit to ensure you’re prepared for your event.

Once you have registered on an event you can join the TSFE Members RV page on Facebook and share your training with fellow participants, gaining tips and sharing stories to help your own training regime.

Can I do a single event in the Loadstone category carrying 45lbs?

Loadstone Aptitude is a series of events and is not a category on individual events.

Those competing in Loadstone Aptitude must complete all three events within the one series under set conditions and timing criteria.

Fan Dance Kit and Clothing

Fan dance kit and clothing information will be provided when you register. This will include a detailed kit and clothing list to help you to prepare for your event. There is a great detail of detail and a ‘Mandatory’ list of kit and clothing prepared for you. This helps to make sure you are able to take part to the best of your ability.

All of our Team have a huge amount of experience in this event and have used this to prepare the detailed Fan Dance kit and clothing list. TFSE are keen to make sure you are well equipped as safety is a priority. We really want you to have an amazing Fan Dance experience.
