Turkey Race 2

Local level event

What does this mean?

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.

Terrain type: Fell






Thanks and well done to everyone who joined us for the second Turkey Race at Bogle Crag this morning despite the poor weather forecast and flooded roads. We hope you enjoyed your courses.

As always, there is a list of folks to thank for helping to put on the event today, mainly Harry for planning, Simon for safety and first aid, the control collectors and the SI Team of Mike, Andrew and Michael.

This area of Grizedale has pretty much every type of forest you could wish for, from delicious runnable beech to mature oak slopes with rock detail to low-vis green. It also has a lot of contours but we don’t talk about that…

Please be aware of other forest users: walkers, bikers, ape-goers, etc. and be nice.

Full leg cover is compulsory.

Festive attire is recommended.

The area is exposed and if the weather is bad you may be required to carry a hooded waterproof jacket, and potentially hat, gloves and waterproof trousers. You should bring these to the event and notices will be displayed in the car park and at the start.

You must carry a whistle.
