IMPORTANT NOTICE – RUNNERS AND SAFETY

The general philosophy in Fell / Mountain racing is that the competitor should take primary responsibility for their own safety on the Fells / Mountains.  Please note the following:

Hypothermia: not responding to conversation; unco-ordinated movement and speech; inability to think clearly; wanting to carry on in adverse conditions; skin cold where normally warm, such as under armpit.  Immediate action: wrap in warm clothing.
Hypoglycaemia: confusion, ill co-ordinated movement and speech; weakness, hunger.  Immediate action: drink glucose solution or suck sweets.
