When you enter the Great Lakeland 3Day™ you must agree to the following participant declaration:
You agree that you have made a realistic assessment of your capabilities and are undertaking a course which best reflects your mountain skills and fitness. You will be prepared for the worst possible conditions and understand that the competition area is very isolated and these hills are exposed to serious weather. You agree that although the organisers will ensure that the event is as safe as possible, your safety is ultimately your own personal responsibility, just as it is with any trip into the hills.
I accept full responsibility for my own safety and any injury sustained during the event. These are not the responsibility of the event organiser, their agents or the landowners. I know my limitations and I am experienced enough to make a reasoned decision whether to not start the event or to retire from the event rather than jeopardise my own or other people’s safety.
