* Please see link here to Fell Running Association (FRA) rules.

‘Best Practice Kit’ is the mandatory minimum for AL, AM and BL races, and Race Organisers may require it to be carried at other categories of event.

‘Best Practice Kit’ comprises:-

Waterproof whole body cover, hat, gloves, map of the route, compass, whistle, emergency food.

Your waterproof whole body cover must have taped seams and an attached hood. The Race Organiser may check your kit before you are allowed to register, or at any time during the race. If the kit list can be relaxed it will be, but don’t risk being turned away from the event. Runners often question whether this level of kit is necessary – the kit is not needed when you are running strongly, but for a runner stopped because of injury or tiredness it could be a life-saver, either for you or for someone else in difficulties.
