A few reminders for Thursdays Buchanan and Pitts sponsored Carraghan Fell Race, the first short race in this years Callin Wild Manx Fell League. Please do not park near the start and finish area as this will be required for the officials. The Colden car park can be used and also on the road at the side of the reservoir but please park carefully. We would advise as many as possible to car share. Registration is from 6.00pm until 6.45pm at the Colden car park. If you have pre entered you will only have to sign the disclaimer, pay the entry fee of £5 and collect your race number. If you have not pre entered you will have to fill in an entry form. Race starts at 7.00pm. Minimum age 12yo on race day. This race also forms round 2 of the Junior Championship.
At the moment the weather forecast is not too bad but it is not going to be very warm. Please turn up with you full safety gear. A decision as to what has to be carried will be made at registration depending on conditions. The course will be flagged from the start to the top of the plantation which is a compulsory route out and back. Once over the stile runners can take any route to the summit. Any spectators who are planning on taking their dogs to the race please keep them on a lead and within the confines of the plantation. On no account take dogs out on to the open fells as there are many sheep with young lambs in this area. It would be helpful if everyone could recycle old safety pins (Richie Stevenson)
