Totally agree about the need

Had a great run...went off course early on though, was expecting a checkpoint at a 4way junction and it wasn't there, was in the mist so ended up doing an extra 3 miles!! BUT that was my fault, live and learn...It also happened to be the only bit I didnt recce...dohhh.

Overall it was a great day out and a lovely place to run, great people, great marshalls,

Please please please let us know asap about a 2013 race..I am so looking forward to having another crack at this..

Getting close now...

Is there a list of essential kit we need to carry. Will be carrying a lightweight version of the kit I normally carry in the mountains anyway (map, compass, waterproof, etc) but wondered if there was anything specific or compulsary ?
