Mandatory Kit

All runners must carry the below equipment, no matter what the weather conditions.

– Whistle
– Compass
– Map of the entire course. (Black & White photocopy not acceptable.)

– Hat and gloves.

All runners’ kit will be checked at registration before receiving your race number and spot-checked before the race can start. (So bring your kit with you to registration !!!)

As this is a challenging race you must be prepared for all eventualities especially if the weather is bad as your navigation will be tested. If you do have to pull out tell a marshal (if possible) and return by the safest direct route and report to the race organisers at the finish when you get back to Donard Park so that we know you are safely off the hills. Hand back your Si card (dibber). For those who plan to carry a mobile phone the emergency contact number on the day will be 07803136002.


It’s looking like a good day. Have a great race everyone.
