LDWA Three Shires

Saturday 24 March 2018

29 miles (46.7 km); 5,682 feet (1,732 m) of ascent

The ascent is approximate and there were no details of starters or finishers or times for other entrants.

The route started from the Swythamley & Heaton Centre and headed to Gun Hill before crossing farmland to the Roaches to traverse the ridge; there was a diversion this year to Lud's Church then Gradbach; past the Three Shires Head and along the Cumberland Brook; a loop up and down Shutlingsloe prior to a well-stocked checkpoint in Wildboarclough; a seven mile loop across mainly farmland and back to the refreshments at Wildboarclough before heading back to the finish from where the fun started earlier in the day. This was a LDWA challenge event and not a race as such but rather a day out to see if the course could be completed within the cut-offs.At the end there were more refreshments.

The weather had been dry throughout and quite mild for the time of year with good visibility.It was wet underfoot in places.
