The Fell Race will be sign posted at the end of Gill Garth Farm track. There is ample parking at the farm.
FRA rules apply, and kit requirement is as follows: FULL FRA kit, ie. waterproof jacket and trousers, map, compass, whistle. There will be checks! We will make changes to this rule on the day if the weather is glorious of course. It is also strongly recommended that runners carry some water – especially if the weather is hot.
If you retire, you MUST report back to race control. Please, please, do this, as nobody wants to spend hours out hunting for people who are already enjoying a nice hot bath at home!
Terrain and map: The race is all on grass, a fast start across pastures, passing the vast chasm of Allum Pot and then the smaller Long Churn Pot. At Colt Park the route heads up continuous steep ground for 1100ft to the top of Park Fell. A small descent, before it climbs yet more up Simon Fell, with the climbing over, the route passes over the infamous Rawnsley's Leap (well known feature to those who do the 3 Peaks Cyclocross!). The route then heads straight back down very steep (grassy) ground to the farm and the finish. The route will be flagged.
If the weather is extremely bad the organiser may alter the route.
