AL 20km/1220m

3 runners to count for teams - male and female

This race is over a rough, tough course with almost exclusively rocky and slippy ground. The weather in September can be warm and clear, but equally the fells can be clagged in, making navigation difficult on a course with many pathless sections.  If you are at all unsure of your ability to complete the course safely, you should gain more experience and come back another year. Previous experience of similar races will be asked for as part of the entry process.

Please read the Ambleside ‘Golden Rules’ for fell racing here and FRA safety requirements here before you enter.

FRA Members only.

A kit check will be held.

Food will be provided at the Finish.
