  • Terrain:The race is well marked and has 6 Check Points – marshalled by Woodhead MRT. The race terrain is a mix of rocky paths and open exposed peat fell – The first section is a climb out of Langsett up to Mickleden and Cut Gate where the route then leads onto open fell tops – this is an exposed section running across well worn peat pathway/lines. After the decent from Swains Head CP the final section has a few short climbs then gives a fast home run across grassy moorland and woodland tracks.
  • Please note that the route is different to that in the past 2 years due to issues with land access.
