    Print off and complete a kit declaration form (one per walker) which you can download from http://www.threepeakstrial.co.uk/kit-dec-forms.htm. Insert your ’Race Number’ in the top box.

    Registration
    Go to the registration desk handling your route / race number.Scout Hall for Gold Route or Guide Hall for Platinum, Silver&Bronze routes.

    Hand in your completed Kit Declaration Form.

    You will each receive a Checkpoint Card and a Wristband. The marshal at the registration desk will check that the name programmed into the wristband matches your name.

    Place the Wristband on your wrist.

    Go to the Checkout Point where a marshal will scan your wristband. Once scanned we will assume you will start the walk. If for some reason you are unable to start,then please return to registration and hand your wristband back to the Fabian4 desk.

    Checkpoints
    As you pass through the checkpoints present your wristband to the marshals to scan. The data is sent to RaceTek's website (https://www.racetek-live.co.uk/). Via the RaceTek website user interface the event Base can monitor walkers in real time as they go through the checkpoints (walkers family and friends can also do this). The system also estimates walker ETAs at a checkpoint and hence highlights walkers that might be in difficultly (e.g. injured or lost).

    Unmanned Checkpoints
    On the Gold Route the Llwynfranc checkpoint is unmanned until 1600, then manned until it closes at 1730. On the Bronze Route three checkpoints are unmanned. A single letter on an A3 size sheet is located at these Checkpoints with a pencil attached. Use the pencil and note the letter in the appropriate box on your Checkpoint Card.

    Checkpoint Closing Times
    Checkpoint closing times are shown on the 'Timetables' tab. Walkers arriving at these checkpoints after this time must retire. After retiring, make your way directly to the Event Base at the Scout Hall.

    Procedure at finish
    At the Scout Hall remove your wristband and hand it in at the Check-in desk together with your Checkpoint Card. The marshal will scan your wristband to register that you have finished. You will then receive a certificate confirming your achievement of completing The Three Peaks Trial Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze Route.

    Refreshments
    Light refreshments will be available at the Guide Hall for all entrants between 1430 and 1930. Unless there are unforeseen circumstances the event will close at 1930.
