2021 Update – Main race now finishes at the Village Hall – hence additional 700m distance.
Getting to Cilcain: Waterworks postcode is CH7 5PF. The final couple of miles to the village is on narrow roads except the road in from the A541 so allow a little extra time and drive safely. The best road into the village comes off the Mold-Denbigh A541 – which at least has white lines!
Parking: VERY limited parking at the Waterworks. Suggest parking at the Viewpoint parking or in the village and walking down.
Please park respectful of the residents – don’t block gates, driveways, junctions, etc. There is good parking at the viewpoint parking above the village.
Kit Dump: There will be a kit dump for you to leave bags, car keys, etc. at the village hall which will be fully staffed whilst you are out on the fells.
Kit Requirements: See attached Race Info sheet for more detail. The weather can be grim on the fells during October and although it has been kind for a number of years you should prepare for the worst. The suggestion is to Wear or Carry the lot! As a Category A race (Hard) it is mandatory to CARRY:
- Windproof full body cover
