Great Owl Running is delighted to present to you this fantastic race organised by Adam’s Fell Running Club North Leeds Fell Runners. This is a Fell Race suitable for beginner fell runners. So if your ready to take the plunge into fell running, this is the race for you!
The route is multi-terrain over rough rocky tracks, heathery paths and approximately one mile of road up the back of the moor. The forest section is interesting and adds nice variety but take care as there are, not un-naturally, tree roots which are often slippery when wet. The little wooden bridges in the forest are also often slippery, especially when wet. Note the new clearance on the second section of forest, this path can be a bit tricky with old tree roots.
Prizes in the MV40, MV50, MV60, FV35, FV45 & FV55 categories (number of prizes per category will depend on the number of entries). Only 1 prize per runner. The prize giving will be at about 12.30pm, at a local pub to be confirmed. Results will be available from Monday 3rd October on the NLFR web site: www.nlfr.co.uk
