Regional event at Blacka Moor
Sun 16th Jan 2022
The area we call Blacka Moor is a physically challenging area, though brambles and even bracken are less fierce in 2017. It consists of two distinct parts, Blacka Moor and Totley Moor.
Blacka Moor is the northern part, cut by two streams with steep sided valleys. The northern and eastern parts of this area are a mixture of deciduous woodland, with some bramble and bracken and open moorland with bracken, bilberry and heather, but with a good track network. The southern part of this area is mostly open moorland but with some open pasture, making for faster running.
Totley Moor is the southern part of the area, mostly wild open moorland with heather or moor grass, but with many pits towards the eastern edge of the area.
The area is exposed and competitors should be dressed appropriately in the event of cold or wet weather.More details about Blacka Moor...
