Runners must no longer use the grassy bank for either ascent or descent during the race. When runners descend to the halfway point they must cross the burn, thereafter descend with the burn to the runners left. Runners may then proceed down the hill by whatever route they wish. What they must not do is run down the traditional route of the grassy bank. Failure to obey this rule will result in permanent disqualification from the race as runners descending the traditional grassy bank route are putting the future of the race at risk.
