Summer Series 2019
Dates and Routes
Please note that these races are run over remote moors and although it's summer the weather can be very unpleasant so suitable full body cover is recommended (eg wind or waterproofs). Navigation is required and so map and compass are compulsory.
We aim to finish by 8.30pm so if you think you will take longer than that please feel free to set off early leaving a note on your car with your name and time on it. As the races are self timed this will not affect your position.
Dogs are not allowed as most of the races are run on the moors where birds are nesting.
