Safety Considerations


  • This is a hill race, with all that entails. It is not a trail or cross country race.

  • The route is not marked and there is no support out on the course.

  • There may be kit checks.

  • Rough terrain so fells shoes required.

  • You should be happy running in the hills and over rough and unmarked terrain and be prepared to be self reliant.

  • If you find others injured, distressed or in need of help please stop and assist even at expense of your own race.

  • If you withdraw or retire from the race you must let the race organiser know as soon as possible.


  • There are no suitable sources of drinking water on the route of the race.
