    Hi, quick question – coming out of Burbage at the start is it then a clockwise or anti-clockwise route? I.e. Do we head for Axe Edge first?

  2. Rich Carratu

    Hi Paul, we’re going clockwise, up to Axe Edge and round. This year at least ;-)

    Hi, can I double check we required to carry the full FRA minimum kit? As for this category of race it is down to organisers discretion. Thank you.

    Hi Frances
    The race is BM so kit is up to the organiser. We are not requiring kit but based on the good forecast recommending map, whistle, compass and waterproof jacket.

  6. Dave Bowen

    Hi Tony
    There is a 2019 race, same route as last year so just under 20km. We may put on a shorter route as well – depends on getting a route that works & that we can get access permissions for
