* Measured on the straight line route as per BOF guidelines. For brown, blue, green and short green there are feasible routes with much less climb than this.
Control descriptions will be printed on the front of the map, and loose control descriptions will be available at Registration.
You MUST download even if you retire so that we know you are back safely. Competitors take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event.
The event is on high open Lakeland fells and participants should dress appropriately and MUST carry a whistle. If the weather is bad it may be compulsory to carry a waterproof cagoule.
There will be a cake stall run by WCOC juniors. Please support their efforts by rewarding yourself with something nice after your run.
