Welcome to the Tim Watkins Blodslitet 2017

This mass start, long distance race was renamed the Tim Watkins Trophy in memory of Tim who died following a car accident in March 2005. Tim was instrumental in introducing this demanding race to the UK and had already organised the first two races.

In Norway, each autumn since 1977, Fredrikstad Skiklubb has staged the original Blodslitet.  During this period it has been raised to an almost cult event, recent years have seen around 2000 competitors from all over Scandinavia and elsewhere.  The nearest literal translation to "Blodslitet" is "Blood letter". The Tim Watkins Blodslitet may not produce blood, but is designed to challenge at each and every entry category.

This event will challenge an individual’s endurance and mental agility to the extreme over some of the Lake District’s finest orienteering terrain.   

The 2017 event will be held on Whitbarrow. Preliminary details have been published. On-line entries are now open.

Final Details are now available. On-line entries will remain open until late on Saturday 18th February and very limited EOD will be available, subject to there being maps left over.

Results have now been posted, see links on the left of this page.
