Detailed and comprehensive information on the particular challenges of this race are on this 'FRA matrix' here. This is a must read for first time entrants of the race.

The race is over a rough, tough course with almost exclusively rocky and slippy ground. The weather in October is rarely ‘pleasant’ and the fells are often clagged in, making navigation difficult on a course with many pathless sections. This race is only suitable for experienced fellrunners.
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 system: 2 medium or long mountainous (Lakes, Scotland, N Wales) category A ‘non-GPS’ fell races in previous 3 years, or similar relevant experience (significant mountain experience). 

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

Please also be aware that certain GPS functions, including following a preloaded track or on screen map, are not allowed at this race in line with FRA rules. 

Narrow roads – please car share if possible.

If you are unable to take part in the event you can substitute another runner in your place.

How to substitute a runner: Ask them for their SiEntries ID, surname and post code and then edit your entry.  Click on the 'Edit / Substitute' button next to your entry details, 'Substitute', type in the SiEntries ID, surname and post code of the person taking your place, and 'Find'.  You will need to update the emergency contact details as well as the 'relevant experience' section.  

Please also note that there are no refunds available. If the race cannot go ahead, any surplus will be donated to Mountain Rescue. You are agreeing to this happening by entering the race :-)
