** Please note that new kit requirements will be strictly enforced from 2014 - see below. 

** Please read this FRA Runner Alert from Mon 17th Feb 2014.

1. WATERPROOF whole body cover (i.e. covering the torso from head to ankles) 
2. Other body cover appropriate for the weather conditions including, as a minimum, hat and gloves but also e.g. a fleece 
3. Map, preferably waterproof, of the race route and surrounding area 
4. Compass suitable for navigating the course (GPS type equipment is not acceptable) 
5. Whistle 
6. Emergency food (long races) 

Must accept the FRA recognition of "waterproof" to mean a garment marketed as "waterproof" (i.e. not just "windproof") with taped seams. Such garments require maintaining (i.e. cleaning and reproofing) to maintain their waterproof quality. 

Should recognise that these requirements constitute "best practice" for all races but are mandatory at all Category Long A (AL), Medium A (AM) and Long B (BL) races as defined by FRA.
