One of eight races organised by Saddleworth Runners, in this case run from the paper mill at Greenfield, just east of Mossley. Torrential downpours, which were sweeping the Pennines throughout the day, held off during the race leaving things warm but breezy on top.
The route took a clock wise circuit to Long Ridge Moss and back; out by the east
banks of Dove Stones and Yeoman Hey reservoirs, turning south into Birchin Clough
and across trackless moor to Chew reservoir, then a steep descent into Chew Brook. It was well flagged and fast, being mostly on good footpath.
A small and friendly event. Well worth the hour or so drive from Sheffield. The nice late start at 2pm catered for those suffering from election lassitude.
