Participant self-declaration statement
By entering the 13 Valleys Ultra event, and subsequently presenting at the start line, I understand the challenge that it represents. As an experienced off-road endurance runner I believe myself to be able to complete the event, having familiarised myself with the details on this website.
  • I am both aware, and capable of completing the distance required having completed similar events.
  • I have sufficient experience to understand how to manage my safety in remote mountainous terrain.
  • I acknowledge the demands on me with regard to navigation, managing my own nutrition and hydration and the other safety challenges that I may encounter when on the remote hills of the Lake District.
  • I recognise I will need to be able to navigate the terrain safely at night, in the dark and in potentially challenging weather conditions.
  • I understand the physical and mental demands that will be brought not only by the distance, but also the elevation gain and loss over the course of the event.
  • I will have completed sufficient training, for both skills and physical fitness, to ensure I meet the above statements between entering and participating in the event.
  • I will apply sound mountain judgement at all times, knowing my limitations and will make reasoned decision with regard to starting / withdrawing from the event, even if it compromises my race result.
