WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO ENTER A RACE?

The minimum age is 14 years and over. At some of our events we have a Junior Challenge, which is open to ages 4 and above. We will require signed parental consent for anyone under the age of 18.

Under 14’s cannot enter the senior event individually. They must be entered as an additional entrant, where the PRIMARY entrant is either
-18 or over and is the parent/legal guardian of the additional entrant or
– has the permission of the additional entrant’s parent or legal guardian.

They must give contact details for the parent or legal guardian.


WHAT SHALL I WEAR?

There is no need to splurge on expensive kit. Just make sure you have a good pair of trainers with a decent tread and sole. Tie those laces tight or secure with duct tape. Avoid anything cotton that will become heavy and waterlogged in water, instead wear light weight tech clothing that will dry quickly and won’t weigh you down. Undecided about gloves? Well they’ll protect you from splinters and rope burns. Don’t forget a towel and a spare change of clothing to change into after the event.
