Whilst not a road or trail race, the race is intended to be suitable for those with more limited fell running experience or relatively new to fell running: please contact the organiser if unsure. The course is marked at major junctions: but the onus is on the runner to navigate. Free maps available online or at race HQ.

Full Fell Runners Association kit to be carried - waterproof whole body cover (with taped seams and integrated attached hood), hat and gloves, map of the route, compass, whistle and emergency food. Additonally a water bottle or similar, and some first aid kit are both strongly recommeded.

Water available at 2 points on route, and hot food / drinks available at the finish.

Course very muddy in parts - footwear with good grip required !

Information from previous years is here - this will be updated for 2022 as required nearer race day.
