Rules and entry requirements

Please read the following rules carefully: they are provided for your own safety and information.

Entry requirements

You must be at least 16 years old as of 2nd June 2023 to enter Stickle Grind 650 Race.

Entries are via SI Entries; Stickle Grind 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.

Race rules

Health and wellbeing

  • You must be confident of your own ability to enter and complete the race.
  • You must be fit, and in good health on race day.
  • You must take responsibility for yourself, and fellow racers, during the race. Your ability to exercise Sound Mountain Judgement is vitally important.
  • Any runner must halt their race to offer help to any fellow competitor who is in trouble or injured. The race directors will reward anyone who does stop to help. Anyone who is found not to have helped a fellow competitor maybe disqualified and barred from entering any future Lake District Sky Trails events.
  • Your ability to self-rescue in the event of injury is a must.

Safety on the course

  • You must wear or carry the mandatory kit at all times.
  • You must stay on the fully way-marked course.
  • You must follow the race route, as dictated by the Race Director or any race officials or course marshals.
  • The Race Director reserves the right to cancel the race in extreme circumstances.
  • Race numbers must not be obscured during the race. Race numbers must be given to marshals on the course. This is an important safety feature. Failure do this will risk disqualification from the race.


    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 650.
