The race is held under UK Athletics laws, FRA and Heptonstall Festival Race competition rules.
The only mandatory equipment is your race number. Ideally you’ll have some clothing to pin it to.In the event of poor weather conditions on race day, the organisers may either choose an alternative route or may even cancel the race. But let’s face it, what with the race being in July and everything that’s pretty unlikely. Flooding though, now that’s a different story…
