From the organiser
Hi everyone, I hope you enjoy this short but challenging outing, especially the drop in and out of Yellowslacks before sprinting to the finish. The start is path junction near Mossy lea farm. Please report 10 minutes before the start to receive your race number on your wrist. It's a steady 10/15 minute to the start from the turning circle at the end of the road in old Glossop. The finish will be at the turning circle. Richard Hakes and team will be starting / timekeeping, and at the finish.

The Queens Arms has said we can use their toilets and they are prepared, I hope for 50 chip butties or so and 25 soups and some beer. Try to stagger in! and for them and yourselves spread out descending on the pub near the finish. Parking between the pub and the turning circle on Shepley lane and then on the approach road near the park.

Race notes
It is advised that you run up Doctors gate to the bridge 1.5k to pass the newly planted plantations and use the stiles to climb the hill to the 1st check point above the rocks top Birchen Orchard clough. There will be a marshal there but shouting numbers not necessary. At CPs 2/3/4 please give your number and smile at the Marshalls so we know where you have gone walkabout should you have that urge. At number 5, which you must climb up to, it will not be necessary to give your number but again smile / express yourself before hurtling off.

Anyone retiring please let a marshal know and the timekeeper at the finish so we know you have gone home safe or are in the pub. Cough up a £1 if you can at the start or finish for the Marshalls liquid expenses! Hopefully the handicap winner will receive the trophy in the pub after 1 pm. All other trophies at the dinner in the evening. Race Checkpoints to be visited in the order above.

Maps will NOT be provided, bring your own.
