Pre Event Info

The Final Details for the Event is now available, please check these before the weekend.

The controls, including the finish, will be enabled in contactless mode so that those with SiAC dibbers should not need to physically punch the controls.

If you are using contactless punching there is no need to touch the control boxes, and it has been noted that some runners hit them hard enough to knock them out of the ground and potentially damage the control box. Please don't do this because a failed control would disrupt the event results for all the competitors.

However, note that it will be necessary to punch the start controls which will not be programmed in contactless mode.

Some notes on using SIACs are attached.

There will also be SAFETY controls after the FINISH which must be punched by all runners - this is necessary to enable us to confirm that all runners have returned from the course.


Nearest town: Seathwaite, Dunnerdale

Terrain Description

Stickle Pike is an open area. It is mainly runnable but technically and physically very challenging. There are intricate rock and contour details and few line features.



This is an exposed Lake District area so please dress appropriately for the weather conditions. If the weather is poor it might be compulsory to wear or carry a suitable waterproof jacket.
