    Always always inform the organizer if you retire unlike the knobs at borrowdale that didnt

    Never turn up to a race that you've pre entered, collect your number then go home without telling anyone. Like some knobs (5 of them) did at Cader this year. Marshalls were looking for ages for them in pretty crap weather.
    Why anyone would do this is beyond me???? unless there was a genuine reason, but 5!!!!!!

    There are a few unwritten rules (during the race) I guess, but would have to be in the right mood/frame of mind to obey them hehe ;-)

    At Noon Stone this year i was at helping at MP1 at the top of the main ascent, a runner on his way back instead of following the flags and our instructions to go round the stones cut between Wayne and myself avoiding the stones and flags completely. Wayne didn't see because he was facing the oncoming competitors but this fella made up about 8 places at least. I'd call that thoroughly unsporting but if a particular crossing point isn't in any way restricted or liable to damage, for example stepping over a wire fence, then i'd still call it resourcefulness rather than cheating...but then i am rather new. Point taken though Ian .

    Watch where you spit especially if there is a headwind

    Always check your laces before the start.

    Always find a river or stream to have a soak in after, and always say thank you to the marshalls and organiser without whom we'd have no races to run:wink:

    Don't hog the front row at the start if you know you are likely to finish in the bottom 20%

    Don't pester the the time keeper for your time/splits/positions/pictures whilst the race is still in progress

    Don't warm down on the run in looking all smug and athletic like

    Don't interfere with the sheep/wildlife

    Don't manhandle other runners. I was running down the scree run off scafell pike during borrowdale and some arse tried to move me
    to one side as I passed him. He put his hand on my shoulder and held
    me and we were both speeding along on very loose and steep ground. I felt like I was going to fall but held back and passed him later on. I decided not to tell him what was on my mind. I even ran off piste to give him room but he held his arm out first and then grabbed me!

    I could have fallen and got hurt. I was very pissed off and the guy behind me asked me whatbthe guy was playing at? Very odd.
