The Cilcain Mountain Race which is held each year on August Bank Holiday Monday as part of the Cilcain Show. Due to Covid pandemic the Show in 2020 has been cancelled but we are aiming to still run the Mountain Race albeit following local and national Covid guidance throughout.
At present we are looking at time trialling the event with runners set off at suitable time intervals, with all gates held open, and only names called out at the top & finish.
Due to Covid restrictions, entries will be online only to minimise contact at registration. No race numbers, trophy presentation and all runners are asked to follow current Covid guidance both before, during and after the race.
At present there are no childrens races planned. Over 12’s can enter the main race. Competant under 12’s can run in the main race if accompanied by a parent or guardian at the RO permission – my suggestion is Over 10 and prior fell/track running experience.
The proposed 2020 route is approx 5km and 340m height gain/loss. Start times from 12 noon.
