This race is held under FRA Rules and runners must familiarize themselves with and comply with the FRA Requirements for Runners 2020 (the "Runners' Rules").
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.
This is a fell race over rough and boggy terrain and so fell or trail shoes are mandatory. Competitors with road shoes will not be allowed to run.
Unfortunately there is no kit storage facility at the Fox House – but it is a great place for a pint, so please do stick around afterwards for a well-deserved beer!
Runners wishing to retire from the race MUST inform Race Control (at the Fox House) and not just a marshal. They should either:
Under 18 years old?
If you are aged 16 or 17 you are classed as a Junior runner (those aged under 18 on the day of the race). You must therefore have the consent of your Parent or Legal Guardian before entering and taking part in an FRA Fell Race and it must be your parent or legal guardian that completes the online entry form.
