Introduction

The Blacka Moor Chase will see a notable change in 2018. Keeping to the many of the paths and tracks of the Blacka Moor Chase as we know it the 2018 version has been shortened down to a 6.7km lung buster. A lung buster nonetheless that 14s and overs can run! This will be the first Totley AC race to have fell runners this young not only competing but alongside adults. In addition to this the time of year has changed, in an effort to decongest the June/July races Blacka Moor will now be the first local mid-week race of the year. We hope these changes are well received. The Race Organiser would really appreciate feedback on the route, format and time of year (and maybe how it feels to be beaten by a 14 year old).

Mandatory kit

In extreme weather conditions the Race Organiser will use their discretion to decide whether kit will be necessary. Please bring full kit with you and expect to be asked to carryyour waterproof jacket.

The route

Blacka Moor Chase 2018 is 6.7km and has 252 metres of height gain. Due to access on Blacka Moor and Totley Moor the route is entirely on PRoW and is therefore fully marked and must be followed at all times.

This race is held under FRA Rules and runners must familiarize themselves with and comply with the FRA Requirements for Runners 2018 (the “Runners’ Rules”).

All runners must carry the kit required by the Race Organiser. Mandatory kit inspections may be performed on race day.  You will not be admitted to start the race unless you have passed this inspection.  A further check may be undertaken on completion of the race – anyone completing the race without the required kit will be disqualified and reported to the FRA.

Your race number must not be folded or cut down and, at the start, all checkpoints and the finish, must be clearly visible on your chest.
Numbers may be recorded at some checkpoints as well as at the finish; failure to show your number at checkpoints will lead to disqualification.
Entrants may not take dogs on the course
Road crossings will be marshalled but competitors are responsible for their own safety.
Runners are not required to record their arrival at checkpoints in any way. The only requirement is that competitors must run past the marshals (without taking short cuts) with their race numbers clearly visible.

Retirement procedure
Runners wishing to retire from the race MUST inform Race Control and not just a marshal. They should either:

    • Report to a checkpoint and then return directly to the finish to report to race control
    • Report directly to race control at Totley AC Pavilion when retiring between checkpoints or
    • Telephone Race Control (see numbers listed above)
