*NB For ages 16-18 you need either a parental consent form or parental signature on race entry form (You can use same forms just need signature)
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 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 will be advised of kit requirements at registration but must have the following items available:
- Waterproof whole-body cover (with taped seams and attached hood)
- 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.
Suitable off road/ fell shoes are strongly advised – road trainers are not suitable for the course.
Criteria for Race Abandonment or Course Re-Routing
The race will be shortened, or cancelled, where conditions are such that the Race Organiser considers that such action is necessary for the safety of competitors and marshals.
