|Lillian Deegan||Sep 5 2021, 10:21am||Hi Michelle, your little ones will need to sit this one out most likely. With it being a winter race, it can be a shocker of a wet and windy one for the grown ups never mind an added task of getting little people home safe and sound too. |
A good gauge for you to know/ get familiar with ahead of schedule for any race (with a junior route established), would be if you look at years previous and see how things were worked there.
Keep an eye out for the Dec. 27th race - it will have a suitable distance for the small ones for deffo.

|Ian Conroy||Sep 29 2021, 11:52am||Hi Iwona, you follow a marked trail to the summit and then you just descend down to the WW. I didn't get lost, which is saying a lot! I think only major junctions are marked as essentially these are the only places that you could. In my experience, even in inclement weather it's well marked and marshalled.|
|Lillian Deegan||Sep 29 2021, 2:57pm||Thanks Ian. I've a mini correction to make here. The event page details read this one as "route not marked" therefore no junctions will be marked - major or otherwise. |
You are spot on, this race route will not be marked. In my opinion, it is not a route where you'd get lost on but never say never I suppose I aught to say.
I have just gone in as race director and I'd hope to have a route marshal available to me on the day at the summit/ turnabout location.
Depending on your running ability, I'd suggest you consider entering and buddy up with another runner for everyone's peace of mind.
