This event is run under WFRA rules, and as such runners should arrive and be prepared to carry whole body waterproof cover, hat and gloves, whistle, compass and you are advised to take your own map. Although the race is well marshalled, and with a ‘sweeper’, much of the race is around 1500ft, climbing to 2000ft. At these altitudes in March, the weather can be extreme. The greatest need for clothing is not for running but when you are forced to stop or slow, and/or require assistance. The race director will specify minimum clothing requirements on the day.
