How does it work
No need to book in advance. However we do recommend that you pre-register (see below) as it does save some time and hassle at the event. Just turn up any time between 10am and 11:30 and we will soon have you on your way.
What do I need to bring
You don’t need any special equipment, just come dressed for the outdoors and appropriately for the weather. In all but city centre parks, you should wear trousers to prevent scratches and nettle stings, but don’t be put off as our beginner courses will stick to paths. Do wear appropriate footwear though – paths do get muddy and slippery in winter.
We will lend you an electronic timing chip (EMIT), a compass if you like and give you a waterproof map to keep.
It is recommended to save time at Registration that you pre-register online. This avoids you having to fill out a form, and saves us having to type (or mis-type!) your details into the results system. It’s very simple to enter online, and you don’t pay until you arrive at the event.
If you do not want to pre-register, just complete this form and bring it with you to Registration.
