Sedbergh Hills fell race Sun 20th Aug 11am

This Sunday at 11am sees the next club fell race at Sedbergh Hills (parking at Sedbergh School, LA10 5HG) .  I’m not going to lie, this one will be a toughie at 14 miles and 6,000 ft of climb, so it’d be best if you were fairly confident on the hills.  Also worth noting is that the course won’t be marked / marshalled all the way and so, whilst it’s a popular race and you should be able to follow people, if you did lose contact with the pack due to poor visibility, then you may need to navigate out of it.  I expect that the organisers will therefore expect you to carry map and compass, plus probably most of the full FRA kit, so waterproofs (taped seams), whistle, water, emergency food, etc.  Details of full kit requirements are on the FRA website. 
There is an option to pre-register, which is slightly cheaper, and you can find this and other details of the race at the official race website below.  As always, please get in contact if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help.
