Route Description: The race starts with a loop of the field behind the village hall, then up the main street. The route then climbs gently through two fields. After a scramble out of Swardean Clough the climb continues through the tussocks before crossing the road and onto the moor proper. Climb to Apronful Hill before some respite on the descent to Ashendean Clough – across Howcroft Brook and up the steep climb through the ferns to the wall corner. Turn at the “memorial“ cairn and enjoy the long descent, gentle at first but then steeply down to cross Howcroft brook again. More tussocks before and after the road crossing before reversing the outward route down through the fields and village to finish at the village hall.
Parking: The race takes place thanks to the goodwill of local farmers and the villagers of Pendleton. Please park responsibly and pay due respect to others using the village.
