PLEASE NOTE: The route of this race was changed in 2016 because the railway line had been washed away in the floods. It is very unlikely to be repaired in time for this year’s race so the route will be the same as in 2016.
From Fitz Park, the route goes out of the park and up Spooney Green lane to the back of Latrigg. It then turns left following the Cumbrian Way under Lonscale Fell to a gate which is the turning point. Return by the same route.
Competitors must be equipped with the following kit, which is mandatory under FRA requirements:
• Waterproof whole body cover (with taped seams and attached hood)
• Other body cover e.g. thermal vest
• Hat and gloves
• Map of the route and surrounding area
• Emergency food
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.
