The race is to be run under Fell Running Association Rules for Competition. Should you be unclear in any way as to what these are please visit www.fellrunner.org.uk
We would reiterate that previous fell running experience is required. This is NOT a trail / parkland race as it DOES cross rough, exposed open moorland.
Whilst the course is partially marked, it is possible some navigational experience will be required. Do not rely upon following the person in front. Have a map & compass and know how to use it.
You will NEED to carry, wear or use the following kit:
A spot check will be undertaken prior to the race starting.
Any competitor retiring MUST report both to the nearest marshall & to the race organiser.
Toilet facilities will be available, by kind permission, at the High Peak Garden Centre and Townfield Barn adjacent to the start/finish field.
The local land owners have been extremely co-operative, working with us to allow access across open farm land en-route to the mast (the first big climb), and allowing access across Abney and Offerton Moor for the later parts of the course. (This access is granted for the duration of the race only; a TWO hour period 1100hrs – 1300hrs on the day – please do not abuse this privilege).
The race is to be held in early Spring (lambing time), so no dogs on the course.
