For on-line entries/information:

Centre/Location/Event Area
The start/finish is from Bradwell Sports Pavilion, Bradwell, North Derbyshire. Grid Ref: 175818. The pavilion is approx 0.5km to the north of the village on the B6049 and is opposite the Samuel Fox pub. Look out for the Dark & White roadside event signs – parking is on the adjacent playing field (if very wet marshals will direct you accordingly). Follow the signs to registration at the pavilion itself. For Friday or Saturday evening accommodation contact Castleton TIO: 01433 620679. The event uses Dark Peak OL1 1:25000 sheet and White Peak OL24 1:25000 sheet. Full colour, bagged map extracts (approx size A3) of the area with the route overprinted can be supplied at the start provided they are pre-ordered – see entry form below.

The Challenge
The routes are 33 miles long with approx 6300’ of ascent and 16mls with 3000’ of ascent – be aware that both are challenging courses and neither is to be undertaken lightly!! Checkpoint sites will be identified by red & white orienteering “kites” fastened to an obvious feature to which a SPORTident timing box will be attached. You must use a SPORTident dibber to take part in this event. You may use your own dibber if you have one (please fill in its number on the entry form), alternatively we will automatically rent dibbers to those who do not have one. “Dib” in the SPORTident box at the start, finish, all checkpoints visited and at the DOWNLOAD BOX at the end. At registration you will be provided with a full route description and there will be maps on display with the full route marked; failure to follow the prescribed route in full will result in disqualification. For safety and event monitoring purposes, some of the checkpoints will be manned.

The Start/Finish
Registration opens at 7.00am and closes 30minutes before your start time. Massed start at 9.00am for the Long Tour and 9.30am for the Half tour. The Long finish closes at 7.00pm prompt. PLEASE DO NOT START without (a) registering and (b) passing the start official and “dibbing” in the start timing box. Checkpoint closing times will be detailed on the route description sheets.

******The Golden Rule – if you are unable to complete the event you MUST either (a) telephone the organisers or (b) report to the finish with your dibber to save a mountain rescue search party being sent out. A central telephone number will be detailed on your route description******

Results & Awards
Event results will be up on shortly after the event. An awards presentation will take place on the day at approx 16.00hrs. There will be prizes for the first 3 overall fastest males and females; there will also be various spot/random prizes awarded.

In the event of hot weather bring sun hat, sun cream and plenty of fluids! PLEASE DO NOT SKIMP ON EQUIPMENT – IT IS NOT WORTH IT!!.Marshals will disqualify anyone who in their opinion does not meet the above equipment criteria. NOTE – this applies to ALL competitors!
