Important Information - Don't Drive Tired
For the 2013 event Cumbria Police asked us to pass on the following information. It is just as relevent for all subsequent events:
Every year there are dozen of serious road traffic accidents in the Lake District, caused by tired walkers (often Three Peaker's) driving after spending a night in the hills. Cumbria Police have asked us to ensure that all competitors at the event are aware of the risks of attempting to drive home when tired.
As such we are providing a number of large rooms at the Event Centre that competitors can sleep in before driving home. Competitors will need to bring a sleeping bag and mat. Strong coffee will also be available. Competitors should take a moment to read the 'Tiredness Kills' leaflet available as a PDF download below.
