Please travel to the event using public transport if possible. Parking is available at the Bonaly car park. EH13 0PB There will be no changing room/shower facilities. Please arrive ready to race. The walk from the bottom Bonaly car park to the start is 1km uphill, allow 20-30minutes.

Race numbers
Race numbers will be provided at registration. Please bring your own safety pins and pin your number at each corner.

The course is off road on paths of mud and grass.

The course will be clearly marked and marshalled. A sweeper will run each race. There will also be a first aid presence. Be familiar with the SHR safety rules.
You MUST bring a waterproof top and whistle and carry these during the race even if the weather is fair. Checks will be carried out on the start line. This is a compulsory race condition. No top/whistle = no run. NB if you start but then pull out, you MUST report to a race marshal or to the finish team (without running through the finish).
Please check yourself for ticks after the event.

Other park users
Please respect other park users. Please avoid disturbance to sheep. Sheep graze the moorland all year round, if you come across sheep, please give them a wide berth and do not run through the middle of the flock as this will cause stress.

There will be no race results available on the day. Race results will be posted online by Monday 26th September.

We would ask you to note and comply with the following:
Please do not attend if you are ill, have symptoms of Covid-19.
Bring your own food and drink for pre-race and post-race. No post-race water or snack will be provided.
