You can do them in any order/sequence that you like. A Winter Round is deemed as being during December, January and February.
If you would like to be added to the Leader Board below you need to supply a GPX track of your round, your name, date of run and TOTAL time to email firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s no need to register just send an email or message via KAC Social Media and let us know you’re heading out. When you have completed the round we need the total ‘Elapsed Time’, from start to finish; this includes any stops, breaks or delays. On Strava you will need to make sure that your run type is set to ‘Race’ to get total time from door to door.
Finally, it’s important to stay safe and be prepared for any weather, this run is through mountainous areas and the weather can be very unpredictable. There are lots of guides to staying safe, information on what to carry, what to wear and what to do in the case of accidents. A couple of great resources are this Runners World article and we recommend getting advice and guidance from our Club Coach, Dave Troman at Love to Run Coaching or contacting Joe from NAV4 Adventure or Matt from Lakeland Mountain Guides as he has both guided the route and run it himself a few times.
