From the entry form.........,
. Owing to possible wintry conditions, the following must be carried: full waterproof body cover, whistle, compass and map – OS 265 Clwydian Range 1:25,000. Mug – if you require a drink en route. Additional equipment recommended to be worn/carried by each participant - spare warm winter clothes, bivi bag, gloves, hat, first-aid kit, food and emergency rations, torch.
I assume that if the weather stays as forecast, the organiser may allow us to leave the waterproofs behind, although this may only be in favour of other full body cover.
I'll take a selection of stuff to the start just in case but if it stays as per the entry and looks like it could be a bit cold on top I'll be prepared to carry...,
Waterproof jacket with taped seams and hood, waterproof trousers with taped seams, buff, gloves, map, compass, whistle, gels, 0.5 litre bottle.
