Race entry covers admission to the Trials. Please bring a copy of your payment/entry receipt with you to gain entry to the field! Any accompanying spectators will need to pay admission separately on the day (£5 adults, kids are free).
The race is a fixed anti-clockwise route following a mixture of well-defined paths and trods plus open fields near the start/finish. Marshals will be stationed at key sections, whilst certain areas will be flagged with tape.
The kit runners are required to carry is at the discretion of the Race Organiser, depending on the weather conditions. It is always advisable that runners should bring FRA Best Practice kit with them to a fell race. A decision will be made on the day - if the weather is good, there will be no mandatory kit requirement.
FRA Best Practice Kit is waterproof whole body cover (taped seams and attached hood) + hat + gloves + map + compass + whistle + emergency food.
If there is a kit requirement then mandatory kit inspections may be performed on race day and you will not be admitted to start the race unless you have passed this inspection. A further check may be undertaken on completion of the race - anyone completing the race without the required kit will be disqualified and reported to the FRA.
Your race number must not be folded or cut down and must be clearly visible on your chest at the start, all checkpoints and the finish.
This is a fell race over rough and potentially boggy terrain and so fell or trail shoes are mandatory. Competitors with road shoes will not be allowed to run.
Please note that in line with Dark Peak Fell Runners environmental policy, no plastic cups will be made available at this race. You are encouraged to bring your own drink, which can be left at race HQ. There is also a bar, serving real ale.
Runners wishing to retire from the race MUST inform Race Control (at the race HQ marquee) and not just a marshal. They should either:
Under 18 years old?
If you are aged 16 or 17 you are classed as a junior runner (those aged under 18 on the day of the race). You must therefore have the consent of your parent or legal guardian before entering and taking part in an FRA Fell Race.
This year, we are asking all junior runners to bring a signed, completed Parental Consent Form with them when they collect their race number.
