  • Entries are via SI Entries and are not vetted: however, Stickle Grind Vertical 650 is a tough race and we expect you to come prepared. You will be tackling tough and technical terrain, including 650m ascent.
  • By entering the race, you are attesting your competence to complete the course.
  • Any competitor found to have deliberately misled the Race Director in this respect will be expelled from the race and all future associated races.

Running with dogs:

  • Although we love dogs and run with them as our regular training partners, we regret that running with dogs is not allowed at Stickle Grind Vertical 650.
