This year’s Bole Hill Bad Boy will be run on Saturday 18 July
. It’s 14.5 miles and 2,500 ft climb. A mid field time will be around 3 hours. Runners can start anytime on that date (ONE DAY WINDOW) and are asked to spread themselves between the following four start points to avoid grouping
2 Ringinglow - lay-by opposite Norfolk Arms,
3 lay-by on A625 under Houndkirk Hill,
4 lay-by at north end of Stony Ridge (GR 276807).
Please try to run individually and if running with other runners please keep 2m distance and don’t run in groups larger than 6.
The route is as indicated on map below and is to be run clockwise (ie each loop run clockwise rather than in a figure of 8). The only flagging will be an arrow at GR 293803 (approx) to show the right turn for the most elegant ascent of Totley Bole Hill.
The Sportsman is open all day for food on Saturdays so Dave has asked that if parking at the pub we use the top car park rather than the pub car park as space in the pub car park has been designated for seating.
It would be good if you could let George know by email (email

if you are planning to run, what time ish you are planning to start and where you are starting from so any obvious potential grouping can be avoided.
