If you are in any doubt about any aspect of the race kit requirements, suitable footwear, etc,
please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the race.
Short/Long Sleeve base layer top or race vest (NO COTTON)
Shorts or tights (3/4 tights acceptable)
Mountain/Trail running shoes with minimum 3mm tread
In addition to the items listed above, we strongly advise you take account of the prevailing weather conditions & dress accordingly. Your kit should be sufficient to keep you warm in the event that you are injured and have to make a long, slow walk back to safety.
The Race Director reserves the right to ask for additional warm clothing (e.g. tights or insulating jacket) to be worn or carried if, in his judgment, the weather conditions on race day demand it. You will be informed of any additional requirements at the pre-race safety talk, with a final decision being made 30 minutes before the start.
Please arrive prepared.
There is one supplied aid station at Stonethwaite Village: please do not rely exclusively on this. You must carry whatever additional food and drink you feel that you will need to complete the route safely. This is in addition to your 200 calories of emergency rations, which must be unused at the finish line.
The feed station is designed as a safety net where by you can pick up some supplies if you have got your race nutrition incorrect. It is not designed for you to gorge at in order to complete the race.
