Emergency Camp (for use by retiring teams)
at Howden Dam road end known as “King’s Tree”  SK-168 939 

All checkpoints have a Sport-ident station.  The Sport-ident records split times and results but, for safety, all checkpoints except Hollins Cross are also manned and in radio contact with HQ.  We can track your progress and work out whether a team is overdue reaching the next checkpoint.

At each checkpoint :-
1- Dib your Sport-ident tag into the station (it will bleep and flash).
2- AND make your arrival known to the checkpoint team by giving your team number (see start list sent prior to event).

Bad weather route- The route may be changed at anytime, even during the event if weather conditions deteriorate.  We have numerous bad weather alternative routes prepared.  If the weather is extremely serious we may have to cancel at the last minute and will telephone team leaders

Also note recent change to route up Win Hill which is now via Hope Brink rather through Twitchill Farm-
