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 start/finish 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 December and although it has been kind for a number of years you should prepare for the worst. No messing this year – Wear or Carry the lot! As a Category A race (Hard) it is mandatory to CARRY:

  • Waterproof full body cover
  • Map (these will be available at registration, or you can print out from the website, or attached to pre-reg email)
  • (A limited supply of waterproof film maps available for a small charge of £1 – please request one if required)
  • Compass
  • Whistle
  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Sufficient food & drink to finish the race
  • GPS tracking device – watch/phone – in the event that sufficient marshals can not be found you may need to record your GPS track as evidence of checkpoints visited. You are encouraged to use the MapRunF app (as it makes my job easier) but a simple GPS watch track is sufficient.
