Date: Saturday 11th May

Venue: Hallin Fell, Ullswater

Terrain: Open runnable fell with complex contour features and steep sides.  The Long course will also visit woodland

Parking: Field near Howtown pier, CA10 2ND.  Or arrive in style on the Ullswater Steamer - https://www.ullswater-steamers.co.uk/timetable-fares/.  The parking is with kind permission of the Outward Bound Trust and there will be a bucket for donations at registration. (Coaching Session participants - see info below for optional alternative parking arrangements).

Register between: 10:30 and 11:30

Set off on your course any time between: 11:00 and 12:00

Start: 1km with 130m climb from registration

Courses close at: 13:30. You must report to the download car even if you retire so that we know you are back safely

Entry Fees: £4 for Seniors and £2 for Juniors. Timing cards can be hired for free

Courses:
Long (challenging navigation and terrain)           4.4km with 260m climb
Short (challenging navigation)                           3.4km with 150m climb
Novice (easier)                                                2.3km with 105m climb

SPORTident Timing: Mixed punching will be used so those with SIACs can contactlessly register at the checkpoints and those with traditional SI-Cards can dib.  The Start and Finish will not be contactless and so must be dibbed by all

Closest toilets: in the centre of Pooley Bridge, 20p charge

Safety: The area is exposed and cagoules may be compulsory.  The courses have been planned to avoid the worst of the cliffs but all courses will have steep descents which could be slippery, especially in the wet.  Competitors take part at their own risk

Planner: Jeff Powell Davies

Coaching beforehand: with an emphasis on re-entrants.  Be ready to start for 10:00.  Juniors and adult beginners all welcome.  Make sure you have warm clothes and something to eat or drink after. Park in the event parking field, or the car park at or opposite the church up the hill from the Outdoor Centre at Ullswater (Road quite steep, take care), and then do your run on Hallin Fell.
