Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round

****Stan Bradshaw Race Is ON ****  Update at 21.40 on 2nd March.

Roads to Barley from Spen Brook Side and Roughlee side are clear – but narrow in places and were being gritted again at 8.50 tonight. Please leave plenty of time to make your journey. We are working on the adage – If you can get there, there will be a race.
but….
IT WILL BE COLD TOMORROW IN THE WIND.
we will be running a partially flagged shortened route. the Hill is frozen turf and mud, scoured from snow across the top, but drifted in places lower down.
FULL RACE KIT IS AN ESSENTIAL MINIMUM. We Will be checking – no kit, no run – do not skimp on layers.

In short: CP1, CP2 then left along the next wall to Ogden Clough, down to upper Ogden Dam and what was CP5 then up to Fell Wood to the amended CP6 – roughly 12km

I have had no post for three days – so if you pre entered late (i.e for it to arrive on the 28th or later) I do not have your entry and will not get it before tomorrow morning. Please be prepared to bring another form – or fill it in on the day and bring cash – I will destroy the cheques when they arrive, in light of the shortened route and chaos – ALL EOD will be £5.

See you in Barley tomorrow – registration 9 till 10.45, race at 11.00.
