Race information and rules

Participants are requested to pre-register for the event, using the registration page on this website. However, a very limited number of places (c. 30 only) will be available for on-the-day registration at the meeting point: St. Anne’s Church, where limited toilet facilities are also available. 
It is expected that competitors will wear/carry appropriate clothing suitable for the conditions at the time of the race - as required by FRA regulations (e.g. a route map and compass, whistle, waterproof jacket, survival blanket). The Baslow Bolt is organised under FRA rules, which will be displayed at the race start, as will a local weather forecast. The event will be fully way marked & marshalled. GPS navigation devices will be permitted, although should not be necessary.

If for any reason you have to retire after you have registered, you MUST notify the organisers at the finish. A marshal will sweep the route behind the last competitor and the checkpoints will close as the sweeper passes. 

Drinks will be provided at the finish but will not be available on the route. Please bring your own water bottle as we are trying to make this a low plastic event.
Prizes are available for the first senior female (WSEN) and senior male (MSEN) and in the following categories: first male and female 40+,  first male and female 50+, first male and female 60+, and first male and female local (open to residents of Baslow and Bubnell).
All proceeds from this event will be donated to Baslow St Anne’s Primary School/ PTA.
