What time does the race start?
Registration will open at 9 am. The 10k race will set off at 10 am. The 2.5k fun run will set off at 12.30 pm.
Can under 18s take part?
Due to the nature of the route, the 10k race is for 18+ only. All ages are welcome to enter the 2.5k fun run. Parents must accompany children aged 12 and under at the event (but they don't have to complete the course with them), and under 5s must be accompanied on the course.
Is the course off road?
The start and finish of both races are on the road for a short section, from The Swan Inn to The Wend, before heading off-road. The route will be fully marshaled, particularly where road traffic is affected.
Is there parking on site?
Parking in the village is limited. We will be using the nearby school playground as a car park. We would urge people to car-share wherever possible. Carleton is just under 2 miles by road from Skipton Railway Station, or 1.5 miles walking across the fields. There is no weekend bus service.
Are there any changing facilities?
Are there toilets for competitors and spectators?
Yes, the toilets in The Swan Inn, by the event village will be open to all. There are no toilets along the course or at the top of the hill.
Can I bring my dog?
Both routes pass through farmland where there may be livestock. To avoid unnecessary disturbance or distress to the animals we would ask you to leave your dog at home.
What do finishers get?
All finishers will receive a Carleton Sheeplechase medal and a bottle of Saltaire beer, courtesy of our main sponsor Saltaire Brewery. Under-18s will receive sweets as an alternative to the beer!
Are refreshments available?
The event village is centred around The Swan Inn, and there will be a number of stalls in the event village including a cake stall.
Will there by any other entertainment?
We will have face-painting and a bouncy castle to entertain the children.
Can I pay on the day?
Yes, although we'd prefer you to register in advance as it will make check-in quicker and easier. Payment on the day is by cash only.
I live in Carleton. Can I avoid the online booking fee and pay by cash in advance?
