With nearly 30 entry applications in 24 hours it has quickly become apparent that we needed to tightened up the vetting procedure.
The vetting procedure has now been clarified so that all entries will be vetted against the following criteria:
1) Demonstration of a suitable level of fitness and mountain experience necessary to complete a five day stage race
2) Ability to navigate in poor weather conditions using a map and compass
3) Typical experience would include Ramsay/Bob Graham/Paddy Buckley Rounds, Mountain Marathons, ultra-running events, multi-day adventure races and multi-day stage races such as the TransAlps, TransRockies or Marathon Des Sables. Other relevant experience will be considered.
