This is not a race for novices! It starts at the bridge at Stair and, after a short uphill road section, climbs steeply up Ella’s Crag and on to the summit of Causey Pike. After a short ridge section, the route drops steeply down the flank of the ridge to a rough stony track before swinging round the base of the fell and back down the Stair road.
Competitors must be equipped with the following kit, which is mandatory under FRA requirements:
• Waterproof whole body cover (with taped seams and attached hood)
• Hat and gloves
• Map of the route and surrounding area
Whether the kit is carried during the race, is at the discretion of the race organiser and not the individual runner. Random kit checks may take place at the start of the race.
