Summer Series 2021

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. Dogs are not allowed as most of the races are run on the moors where birds are nesting.

March / April 2021 Everyone else can set off anytime from MONDAY TO WEDNESDAY NIGHT - then email me your time before Thursday afternoon on
