||The access to the Mountain View Ranch
is approx. 200m south of the Black Cock Pub. The owners have kindly let
us use their car park for free so please make a purchase at their
Canteen and Coffee Shop which serves homemade Welsh beef burgers, Ranch
Chilli Dogs, Nachos, Baked Potatoes and a selection of hot drinks and
homemade cakes! Saturday opening times are 1200 - 1530. Big play area
for the kids too!
The roads in the immediate vicinity are narrow so I discourage parking on these.
note that the race start is just under 1km away so allow plenty of time
for registration and walking to the start line. Registration will cease
at 1345 and no late-comers will be allowed to race. I suggest you
register from 1245-1330.
Insurance and Safety
is insured by the WFRA and therefore competitors are subject to the WFRA
safety requirements for fell races and rules for competition.
Competitors should arrive at races prepared to wear/carry all of the
- Adequate whole body cover, (e.g.
windproof or waterproof top and legging to give protection against the
effects of wind chill, hat and gloves) to protect you against
hypothermia or heat exhaustion/ dehydration in the severest conditions
likely on the day. The Race Organiser (RO) will specify minimum clothing
requirements for their event, but you are responsible for carrying much
additional clothing as necessary for your own protection. You should
always bring additional protective equipment to the race registration in
order to be able to comply with more stringent requirements that may be
demanded by the RO on the day due to adverse conditions. The greatest
need for clothing is not for running but when you are forced to stop or
slow, and wait what can be a very long time for rescue.
- Map of the race route and compass, both suitable for navigating the course.
- Emergency food and/ or fluids as needed for the conditions.
- Any additional items specific to your needs.
note that the race was subject to severe climatic conditions two years
ago with sleet and horizontal freezing wind. Competitors must bring
suitable clothing for such conditions. I suggest that you bring a bum
bag which can carry: hat, gloves, windproof top and bottoms (full
length) and whistle. If it’s raining or if there is a risk of raining I
will be specifying that you must wear/carry waterproof tops and bottoms.
Bring them. If I don’t see a bum bag, it’s a little obvious that you’re
not carrying kit. Wear suitable off road shoes too.
Please note that I've turned a few competitors away last previously for not having the necessary safety equipment.
