Round three of the Rentokil Manx Fell Running League will take place on Saturday 16th February. The Aston International Baldwin Valleys Fell Race will be held over a 14km course that includes 750m of ascent and it will start and finish at Ballawylin Beg in East Baldwin.
Full safety gear is mandatory for all runners and the minimum age is 18 years on race day.
The event will start at 1.00pm with an early start at 12.30pm for those who expect to finish at the rear of the field. Anyone who finished in under two hours in the recent Ard Whallin race will be expected to start in the main race.
Registration, including kit check, will be from 11.45 to 12.15pm for the early start and
12.15 to 2.45pm for the main start. There will also be spot checks on kit before and after the race.
As parking is fairly restricted it is recommended to car share if possible.
A few helpers are still required for the race. Please check the marshals page on manxfellrunners.org for details to see if you can help. All runners are reminded that to complete the league they must marshal at one race.
As was the case last year the race will be known as the “bring a cake race”. Competitors are encouraged to bring a cake, preferably home made, for the post race refreshments. Last years spread will take some beating!
It is hoped to have a race map available to download shortly.
Permission has been given by the various private landowners to have a full recce of the course on Saturday 9th February starting at 9.30pm from Ballawylin Beg. It is highly advisable for any runner who has not competed on this course to try to attend the recce.
