Race Kit

 

This is the Cheviots and although you do get still, sunny days you need to be experienced in and prepared for bad conditions.  This can range from hard rain to high winds.  The run won’t be called off due to bad weather (lightning apart) so you’ll just have to deal with it.

All entrants to The MONTANE® Cheviot Goat get an exclusive promo discount code for use at Montane.co.uk.
