Please be aware the mountain element of the 2021 event WILL NOT be marked/flagged. Maps will be provided in the Race Pack and an overview map will be on display in the Registration Area. A good standard of navigation will be required to complete the course safely. Competitors must appreciate the potential seriousness of being in the mountains in bad/poor visibility. Volunteer marshalls will be placed around the bike and mountain elements. A kit check will be undertaken prior to the Event. The minimum kit MUST be taken on the mountain element - this maybe checked and anyone found not having this, will be subject to a time penalty. A kit list is available on the website. All volunteers and staff involved in the event will be clearly identifiable. The Event will only be cancelled, re-routed or stopped for reasons of safety. If conditions become dangerous, the Organisers will endeavour to provide an alternative route. Entry fees, however, are not refundable.
During the bike element, 'drafting' is not allowed.
