Mortimer Road is strictly out of bounds on the way between Emlin and Back Tor Trigs. However, you can run up Mortimer Road from its junction with Foulstone Road to the top of the track that drops down towards the Strines Reservoir dam.
Late rule change: You can run either clockwise or anti-clockwise.
This is a Time Trial. You may run: solo, as a household group, or with one other runner (whilst ensuring a distance is kept to 2m at all times).
14 y.o. to 16 y.o. may participate with an accompanying adult. 16 to 17 y.o. may participate solo or with an adult. It is important to recognise that this is not a marshalled race. Self-sufficiency of the group is required in all feasible circumstances. 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. If running alone, please ensure that a responsible adult knows where you going, the latest time by which you will return and knows what to do if you don't.
The 7 day window to run the race is Monday 19th October to Monday 26th October. Times to jim.paxman [at] blueyonder.co.uk by mid-day Tuesday 27th October.
