Race Description

Visit as many control sites (each having a points value) as possible within 3 hours – route planning is as important as fitness. There are penalty points if you are back late! Navigation skills are required and these events are mainly aimed at fell runners/orienteer’s, but they are suitable for strong walkers.

Control sites will be identified by red & white orienteering “kites” on the feature to which a SPORTident box will be attached. “Dib” in the SPORTident boxes at the start, finish, all controls visited and THE DOWNLOAD BOX at the end. You must use a SPORTident dibber to compete. You may use your own dibber if you have one.

Registration opens at 8.00am. Start anytime between 08.45 & 10.15hrs. Try to arrive at least 30 minutes before you intend to run. At the start line you will be handed a map and a control description/value sheet. Course closes at 14.00hrs. Drinks and biscuits will be available to finishers.

Due to the high level nature of this event you MUST wear/carry the following items:
Boots or fell running shoes that in the organiser’s opinion are fully suitable for the type of rough terrain to be encountered. Waterproof cagoule/jacket (with taped seams); windproof leg cover; other warm body cover appropriate for the prevailing weather conditions: compass (preferably a Silva type); whistle; sufficient coins for telephone calls or a mobile phone; a plentiful supply of liquid and food to see you through the event. PLEASE DO NOT SKIMP ON EQUIPMENT – IT IS NOT WORTH IT!!
