General Information

What

A 15-year-old hilly run attracting the very best and most fun-loving runners. This popular event is well renowned for its tough cross country routes, and so sells out extremely quickly (absolutely nothing to do with the infamous homemade brownies and flapjacks).  Medals can be earned at each event for all finishers. Will you get all 3?

What to wear

Trainers:
This is a trail-race, therefore, we recommend trail-running shoes are worn. You can purchase these from Fitstuff preferably no later than 4 weeks before the event to give your feet a chance to adjust. For the best results make sure to take advantage of their free and professional shoe-fitting service. We specifically recommend the Asics Metaride or the Asics Kayano 26 models as great running shoes. 

Socks:
For maximum comfort - and to avoid getting blisters - ensure you wear a proper pair of running socks. aat events recommend Hilly Socks. You can buy these at Fitstuff. To learn more about Hilly Socks click HERE

Earphones:
You must be aware of your surroundings and be able to hear marshalls at all times. Therefore the only recommended earphones are Aftershockz bone-conducting earphones - the only earphones to be approved by United Kingdom Athletics. Click HERE for aat-events earphone policy. You can purchase these from Fitstuff. Be sure to make the most of their try before you buy scheme. 

Extra Kit:
In our attempts to reduce one-use plastics we have a couple of suggestions. Firstly, to wear clothing with pockets or a run-belt to carry a cup, buy the aat cup HERE. Or you can support yourself with a water pack. Both of these can be purchased HERE.
