Entry costs £8 per athlete

Races are open to athletes born in or before 2003 and are open for all to enter.
All competitors must carry a head torch and a waterproof top and be prepared to also carry waterproof bottoms, hat and gloves.
The Race Organiser will decide what kit should be carried on the day. This information will be available at registration.
The races finish high up on an exposed mountain side/summit and the only protection you will have from the elements is the gear you carry (unfortunately there is no way the organisers can transport kit to the summit).
Failure to comply with any minimum kit rule will result in disqualification.
Any athlete who retires from the race must report their retirement to a race marshal.
Athletes are responsible for making their own way back down the mountain after the finish. We strongly recommend that you follow the flagged race route back down the mountain to the start.
Note that for the purposes of selecting the senior British Athletics teams for the Uphill Only and the Classic races, senior athletes are defined as born in or before 2003.
N.B. Athletes born in 2002 to 2005 are eligible for the junior race (up and down) 19th September at Sedbergh.
