Long Tour of Bradwell
Saturday 11 August 2018
32.7 miles (52.6 km); 7,218 feet (2,200 m) of ascent
The above details are from last year's race and this year there were some small adjustments to the route so the distance and ascent may be slightly different.
The route embraces some interesting and varying scenery from both the White Park and Dark Peak areas of the Peak District. It starts in Bradwell with a gradual ascent to the Limestone Way before descending to Castleton via Cave Dale; then over Hollins Cross and down to Edale before a climb up The Nab and across to Rowland Cote Moor (but not to the Druid's Stone as in previous years); up Lose Hill and around the edge of Win Hill and across to Bamford; past Dennis Knoll to run along Stanage Edge followed by Upper Burbage Bridge and Burbage Bridge; down Padley Gorge and past Upper Padley and Leadmill before a trail along Abney Clough then up and over and back down to the finish in Bradwell.
The weather was warm and sunny and it was dry underfoot.
