The Closing date for the 2017 race has now passed, please do not try and enter as we already have a (long) reserve list of Clubs wanting to run in this years race. Clubs will be notified by e-mail of their team allocations my mid-August at the latest to allow time to recce the various legs. We know a number of clubs will be disappointed but the simple reality is we are limited on the no. teams we can take, and much as we would like to we can’t give every club an Entry. Sorry!
For those clubs who haven’t got into this years race, or wanting to enter for the first time, Entries for next years race will open at the beginning of July 2018.
Please send this Entry Form back by

The following criteria apply to each team category (please note that you cannot enter more than one team in any single category e.g. 2 x Open Teams):
Ladies Team – all 8 ladies
Mixed Team – 4 men and 4 ladies in each team (can be split across the 4 Legs in any way you want).
Vets Team – all 8 runners (any mix of male or female) must be aged 40 or over on the day of the race
Open Team – errmmmm, anybody else !
Entries are restricted to a fixed number of teams and we make no apology that there is a certain amount of vetting and Club selection if we exceed this number (which has happened every year). New clubs should not try to enter more than one team as you will not be successful, but we do try and take at least one or two new clubs every year. Priority on new clubs will be given to clubs who have tried (and failed) to Enter in the past and also who have proven experience in fell running….. this is not the race for road running clubs to try their first foray onto the fells and your entry will not be accepted for your own safety and also that of our Marshall’s.
Last year for various reasons we had four teams withdraw in the last 2 weeks, so it’s worth remembering even if you don’t get in to start with we hold a reserve list and you might be offered a place late in the day if you think you can still get a team prepared.
