Run and Walk Rules

This is a virtual event whereby athletes can choose a distance to complete and then choose their own route over which to complete it.

It will not be a strict competitive process but a personal challenge.

The selection of the route, time of day and weather will be part of the process and are all completely up to you.

We are not putting any rules in place vis a vis out and back, maximum number of laps, amount of elevation, drop or any timing requirements.

We do not need a map of your route all we ask is that you log your performance using Strava/Garmin or pen and paper and submit it to us to prove that you completed the distance.

In exchange we will send you a bespoke Virtual Festival medal and publish the results on the festival website

All entrants with receive a specially designed medal and £2 from each entry fee will be donated to the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team in recognition of their ongoing support not only for the festival but for our community.
