PLEASE READ THE LATEST COVID GUIDANCE BEFORE ATTENDING THIS RACE

Something for Easter! A TT, but there is no harm in doing it as a group.

The Kinder Killer. You must start and finish at the same checkpoint - It may be any one of them. It may be completed in either direction.

You may run: solo, as a household group, or as a group of up to six people (whilst ensuring a distance is kept to 2m at all times).
However, please note: you must be self sufficient on the hill. Consider conditions and options for self rescue in the event of an accident.

RO is Jim Paxman. I'm sure he'll be generous for any declared mistakes in your route.

You are asked not to run the course repeatedly to try and get a better time!

Carry all that you will need to stay safe. FRA kit is a minimum - but quite possibly short of what you will really need to stay warm if you have to stop running.

The race window is a Monday 29th March to midnight on Sunday 18th April.

GPS may be used.

Thanks to Ken Jones for devising the route.

Submit results here by mid-day on 19th.

A junior run from age 6 to 17.

Leaders Helen Elmore & Megan Wilson.

Pre-booking is required. Via the usual social media, or the Juniors link on the website contacts page.

It can be cold out there! Please ensure every child has a long sleeved top, a waterproof jacket, hat, gloves and a means of carrying them.

The younger group will find a good location and then operate in that area. Parents are encouraged to stay with the group, have some fun and join in.

The older group will go for a run (they will need a bag to carry their warm layers). Patents should leave children in this group and have an escape for the duration.

Sat 7th Dec 2024 9:30amDPFR raceNorth Grain There and Back

Graham Berry's one-off 70th birthday race was such a gem that the webmaster and calendar agreed in the pub immediately following that we cannot let Graham's 80th pass without a repeat running.  With a winning time on a fine day in December 2014 of 2hrs 15mins, and some stalwarts taking over 3 hours, the 9am start certainly needs retaining for the increasingly more mature.  As to other arrangements - all in good time, folks, all in good time.
