Layers, layers & layers! Gloves, a hat, a windproof top and waterproof socks. Please bear in mind that if you choose to wear shorts and t-shirts this may result in some grazed knees and arms. In terms of footwear please ensure the laces of your trainers are tied tightly so they don’t get sucked into the mud.

Is there somewhere I can leave my belongings?
