For the Inveraray Jail Break there is a team competition for teams of three runners.

Also note that the Start and Finish are NOT in the same place but are within walking distance of each other. The castle is still open for buisness so please do not disrupt the visitors access to the building. There is parking at the Castle, a small fee applies.

SCOTTISH HILL RUNNERS

GENERIC SAFETY RULES FOR HILL RACES UNDER SHR INSURANCE COVER

THESE RULES ARE MANDATORY FOR ALL COMPETITORS AND RACE ORGANISERS

Introduction.

A Scottish Hill Runners (SHR) hill race is one insured by Scottish Hill Runners (NB not all races in the SHR calendar are insured by SHR)

Factors including weather and terrain mean that hill racing takes place in a hazardous environment. Competitors must have appropriate experience in the conditions that may be encountered so that they can manage their own safety.

The Race Organiser (RO) has a duty of care to competitors in their race. However, competitors must accept that race monitoring (marshals, checkpoint recording, search and rescue etc.) is not infallible and must not be considered a ‘safety net’. The competitor must obey all instructions from the RO and officials but must equip and conduct themselves as though they were unsupported for the duration of the race.

Breach of a rule by a competitor may result in disqualification from future SHR races for a period determined by the SHR Committee. A set of safety guidelines for ROs and competitors is also available to help all to comply with these rules. An appeal procedure is available for resolving disputed decisions.

SHR will audit compliance with these Rules.
