Medical Conditions
If you have a known medical condition, please write any relevant information on the reverse of your bib number. If you feel unwell before the event but still wish to take part then please check your fitness and look
at www.runnersmedicalresource.com for information and advice related to running events.

Running whilst wearing headphones/earphones significantly reduces your ability to hear traffic, individual vehicles, instructions and warnings from the marshals and other athletes, and generally distracts your attention, increasing the risk of accident or injury to yourself and possibly other people.

If despite this advice you choose to participate in the event using such a device you accept full responsibility for your own safety and for the safety of anyone else who may be affected by your acts or omissions. As this event is on trail and completely off road you are allowed to wear headphones but they must be a bone conduction version.

Minimum Age
You must be at least 15 years old to enter.
