PLEASE NOTE: The route of this race is as per 2019, out and back on the fell as per map. It will not revert to the railway line as that is now tarmacked. Next year we hope to run a new circular route once the forestry and path work in the area is complete.
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)

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 and/or finish of the race.
Suitable off road/ fell shoes are mandatory – road trainers are not suitable for the course.
