High Fells of Coquet HM

15.07.18

15/07/2018.  A summer run you can get your teeth into.  This is the Clennell Trail Run is all but location.  Same fantastic hills, lung busting climbs and friendly atmosphere.  I really needed to find new ways of creating sneaky endings so the easiest way was to move the event a wee but up the valley.  The Upper Coquet is such a stunning area you’ll be fully immersed in the very best Northumberland National Park has to offer.

 

The usual ingredients are on the menu.

  • Hills so steep you might need climbing gear.
  • The possibility of some kind of sense of humour test near the end.
  • Stunning views.
  • True running camaraderie.

 

Looking after you will be our safety team to ensure everyone gets round in one piece.  This event also carries points towards the High Fells Trail Series should you have one eye on the 2018 championship.  Once you’ve completed your run you’ll get a finishers medal (4th one in the High Fells Trail Series) and a technical tee.  There is also a large range of categories on offer for prizes should you want some glory.

Cut-Offs

The route will be fully marked.  A GPX file will be sent out in the info pack 1 week prior to the event.

Checkpoints

There will be one feed station at the half way point and it will be packed full of goodies to stuff into your belly.  The home made flapjacks tend the steal the show.

Medical Info

If you have any medical conditions you must tell us in advance of the run. A professional medical team will be on site to deal with major incidents. First aiders can also be found around the course. Each runner will be given essential safety info to take round with them that has key details on it. Mountain Rescue are informed of the event. The nearest hospital is Cramlington Accident and Emergency Hospital.

Mandatory Kit

Summer in the Cheviots can still throw a few curve balls so check the weather and dress accordingly. The run won’t be called off due to bad weather (lightning apart) so you’ll just have to deal with it. Here’s your list:

  • Enough fluid for 2 hours of running
  • Emergency whistle
  • Waterproof/Windproof jacket/gillet (can be one jacket)
  • Emergency survival bag – the plastic kind are just find and cheap as chips.
  • Food of your choice.
  • Mobile phone. It will only work when high up but it can be a vital lifeline in an emergency.
  • OS Map OL16 1:25,000

This kit will be checked before the run starts as no chances will be taken out on the hill.

Map

A map will be posted once all land access issues are sorted and route is finalised.

FAQ

Got something on your mind? We might be able to help you here:

Do I need to register in advance?

Yes. All participants must enter in advance using our online booking. For registration info please see above.

Will we receive a map of the route?

You will be sent the map as part of the runner information pack around 1 week prior to the event. There will be a map of the route on display in the registration area. The route will be well marked but in the event of any issue refer to your map. The route is well sign posted with marshals at key points.

Are there Age Limits for Participants?

Yes. All runners must be 17 or over.

Should I bring my family?

Why not. They can walk around Ingram or sit in the cafe in the event of bad weather.

Can I bring my dog?

You can bring your dog to the event but not out onto the hills.  There are loads of places for you to walk your 4 legged friend before and after the event.

What Shoes Should I Wear?

Trail or fell running shoes are recommended. They can deal with the conditions far better than road trainers.

Can we stay the night before?

We’re working on a camping option and will post it on here when sorted.

There are plenty of places to stay in the area should you be travelling from further afield. Have a look at the accommodation section of the site.

Do I need a support team?

No. We will man the event and make sure you get round OK. You will need to bring essentials such as a kit list/compulsory items mentioned above.

What happens if I drop out?

We encourage anyone to try as hard as they can but there is no point in going beyond your limits. Injury, fitness or even a family emergency may mean you have to leave the event. If this happens on the course please go to the nearest checkpoint/marshal and let them know you are dropping out. If you only go to one checkpoint please try and make it the registration area as this is the final count of who has finished and left the area. If you don’t then we’ll presume you are missing and go on a man hunt! Always sign out of the event.
