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.

Update from Simon Dixon below (it's his route).
To avoid possible confusion with the debutantes, I've revised the map (attached) by adding in a new first CP at the gate above Lockerbrook. All others remain the same, but I've put purple and yellow ribbons on one of the trees at the wall (CP3) and rebuilt the cairn (CP4).
