Team Fell Enduro – Moel Famau – 16.5k AM – Teams of 4
Sunday 14th July – 10-11am start times
Bwlch Penbarras, Clwydian Range, North Wales
16.5km (1300m) composed of 10 timed stages (totalling 7.5km 500m) and 9km (800m) of non-timed transfer stages. Taking in some of Clwydians best trods, views, climbs, descents the course will wind you over Moel Famau and back to Bwlch Penbarras.
Teams of 4 only. Main event is mixed teams of 2 male/2 female but will have an Open class for any 4 runners. Likely number of teams will be limited.
The course is divided into a number of timed stages + transfer legs (with generous maximum time allowance). Teams will navigate the course together being responsible for the safety of all team members. Each timed stage will have entry time and exit time recorded (electronically) and each runner will dib each point. For each team the fastest 3 times count.
Some way marking will be provided but your team will need to have enough navigation/recce knowledge to get you round the course.
The intent is to have a chilled fun race with your mates with plenty of inter-team banter and for clubs to add colour and frivolity by sponsoring one of the 10 timed stages. Sponsorship means a minimum of providing a start & finish marshal for the stage though hopefully teams/clubs will add a little colour & fun to the fells – fly a banner, jaffa cakes, juggling clowns, shots of vodka, water pistols…. you get the idea. Usually most clubs have their own ‘thing’ – bring a touch to add spice.
I would be super happy to hear from teams/clubs willing to get involved by sponsoring a stage so please message/email early expressions of interest so I can start to fully plan.
