Please read the following safety guidance: WFRA race organisers handbook 2019
In addition to the WFRA guidance due to length of race and time of year the following additional kit is MANDATORY:
+ Full body Waterproofs MUST be worn or carried.
+ Spare thermal layer (top & bottoms) MUST be carried.
The RO also advises carrying a Foil-lined bivvy bag/emergency shelter
The foil-lined emergency shelter can be sourced from e-bay/amazon for less than a fiver. They are lightweight and will save your life.

2021 Map & Checkpoint Grids
Checkpoints could still be moved! This information is made available to those wanting to recce the course beforehand. The Race Organiser welcomes feedback and comment both before and after the race – the inbox is always open 😉
Recce info: You are an ambassador for the fell race race community. Our races need supportive landowners. PLEASE be courtious and gracious if approached by anyone. DO NOT climb fences – there are gates, stiles & step-overs. Close gates behind you. Do not ‘worry’ the sheep!
Note 1: Direct approach to CP1 currently has no access agreement – I will seek closer the time when Covid guidance is better known.
The Short course is goes straight from CP3 to CP8 (missing 4-5-6-7) approx 20k & 1000m.
Full course is circa 27k & 1500m dependant on line taken. Stay safe – take your safety kit.
