Race Day

If you require assistance at any time, please contact Paul Fauset, Race Organiser on 07951 359665 / 07789 616125

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").

Race Kit

The kit runners are required to carry is at the discretion of the Race Organiser, depending on the weather conditions. All runners should bring FRA Best Practice kit with them in case the weather is bad. A decision will be made on the evening. If the weather is good, there will be no mandatory kit requirement.

FRA Best Practice Kit is waterproof whole body cover (taped seams and attached hood) + hat + gloves + map + compass + whistle + emergency food.

If there is a kit requirement then mandatory kit inspections may be performed on race day and you will not be admitted to start the race unless you have passed this inspection. 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.

Your race number must not be folded or cut down and, at the start, all checkpoints and the finish, must be clearly visible on your chest.

Retirement procedure

Runners wishing to retire from the race MUST inform Race Control (at the Fox House) and not just a marshal. They should either:

  • Report to a checkpoint and then return directly to Race Control;
  • Report directly to Race Control when retiring between checkpoints; or
  • Telephone the Race Organiser (see numbers listed above).

Environmental Concerns

It is imperative that runners stick to the route in order to minimise any possible environmental damage / disturbance. Please stick strictly to the paths where appropriate, especially on Burbage North. Thank you.
