The race is an English Championship race this year

Teams (Men 5, Ladies 4) free

This race is over a rough, tough course with almost exclusively rocky and slippy ground. The weather in October is rarely ‘pleasant’ and the fells are often clagged in, making navigation difficult on a course with many pathless sections.  If you are at all unsure of your ability to complete the course safely, you should gain more experience and come back another year. Previous experience of similar races will be asked for as part of the entry system.

Please read the Ambleside ‘Golden Rules’ for fell racing here and FRA safety requirements here before you enter.

Narrow roads – please car share if possible.

Organiser: Dan Duxbury
