Info: New entries for this event closed on Sunday 12th September 2021.
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.
FRA Members only.
A kit check will be held.
