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 Sleeve base layer top (NO COTTON)
Shorts or tights (3/4 tights acceptable)
Mountain/Trail running shoes with minimum 3mm tread, e. g. Walsh PB, Salomon Fellraiser, La Sportiva C-lite, Inov-8 X-Talon or Mudclaw.
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.
