The Race

There will be a short version for those that aren’t up to the full distance and also an alternate earlier start for those that want to ensure they are back in time for the BBQ.

Long Course incorporates 3 checkpoints – 1. the infamous Crookes lamp post, 2. Shirecliffe viewpoint as featured in the BBC’s ‘Threads’ nuclear fallout film and 3. Wincobank Roman Hill Fort. Mostly on roads but with some off-road sections.

Short Course will not visit Wincobank.

Starts: 7.00pm for the main race, 6.45pm available for those who want a little more time on either course

Records: Men – Rob Little 66.00 mins (2011)
