Pre-event Details

Map / Terrain

Full leg cover isn’t compulsory.

The terrain is runnable open fell rising to 400m with complex rock and contour detail and very few paths. Fine views of the Duddon Valley distract from the navigation.

The orange and yellow courses are on the short side and keep to the lower parts of the area due to the very limited path network. Competitors on the yellow course will need to follow a stream for part of the route, and also a marked section.

The area is high, and exposed. If the weather is severe 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.

Sheep graze in the area, so remember to check for ticks after your run.

You must carry a whistle.
