The junior races take place on private farmland and it is lambing time. To ensure that the races can continue in future years please do not bring any dogs to the start / finish area, or the race routes as far as the stile shortly before the U13s turn point.

The courses are all out and back from the field on the right just up the lane from the village hall. The terrain is track, field and fell. The route runs up to Buttock farm and then climbs towards the trig; each age category turns back at a designated point. Parents and guardians please make sure you have read the “FRA requirements for runners 2015”. Please also come prepared to carry or wear body cover as the weather in April can be very variable on the top of Pendle. A recommendation will be given on the day taking into account the weather conditions.

There will be a full prize list and all runners will get a goody bag and drink. Hot and cold refreshments in the village hall.

Contact details as above. The routes are the same as last year.
