There are six checkpoints which may be visited IN ANY ORDER and at each checkpoint there will be a stake and a punch.

Checkpoint 1 – 028978 - Small cave in Stonebrake Quarries.
Checkpoint 2 – 035984 - Tree on east bank of stream.
Checkpoint 3 – 045993 - Path junction.
Checkpoint 4 – 046012 - Trig point.
Checkpoint 5 – 027015 - Monument and pile of stones at path junction.
Checkpoint 6 – 015990 - Fingerpost at path/track junction


The only checkpoint not easy to locate if the weather is inclement is checkpoint 4, the trig point above Featherbed Moss and, if the weather IS inclement on the day there will be an option to ignore this checkpoint for a time penalty of 15 minutes. Competitors will be informed on the day if this applies.

£1 voluntary contribution for the maps would be greatly appreciated.
Maps will be provided and, as ever, a poly bag to cover them would be advisable as they double as your control card.
In view of the time of year it would be very advisable to carry a headtorch and mobile phone as well as appropriate spare clothing.
