This race is held under FRA Rules and runners must familiarize themselves with and comply with the FRA Requirements for Runners 2017 (the "Runners' Rules").
The kit runners are required to carry is at the discretion of the Race Organiser, depending on the weather conditions.

A further check may be undertaken on completion of the race – anyone completing the race without the required kit will be disqualified and reported to the FRA.
