Participants should bring their own packed lunch and bottled water.

Participants should wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and activity. Layered clothing is best for the conditions - ideally a quick drying base layer, a thin fleece for the mid-layer and a light waterproof as the outer layer.

The terrain is mainly forest tracks and paths - with one steep but short section.
