All runners will need to have previous fell running experience and carry full safety kit.
The U18 race is mainly on good paths with the section between CP1 & CP2 being more open to route choice.
Obviously this is a challenging youth race so entrants should be used to regular runs of a similar fell distance or greater road distance.
- Offroad/Fell shoes due to the steep descents from the summits and below checkpoint 1. Flat soled trainers are not suitable due to time of year.
- See main Race Info sheet for more detail:
Windproof full body cover
Map (these will be available at registration, or you can print out from the website)
Enough Food & Drink for your requirements
- If the weather is poor you will be told to carry:
Waterproof full body cover
