We feel that this is the route that best embraces the fells around the Pendle area. It takes on the 3 toughest Climbs in the area with great descents and fast running in between. The race is perfect for those seeking to step up to the full tour of Pendle/Lakeland races or similar AL or BL fell races. It will also challenge the true fell runner who enjoys grassy descent and tough long climbs.
The route is being run in the summer so hopefully the visibility and weather will be good. The route will be partially (not fully) marked and will have marshals and credit card style dibbers at all check points. However navigation skills maybe required so the carrying of a map and compass is mandatory. A map can be purchased with online race entry or purchased on the day. There is also a description of the route here 2016 Route Description and grid references of the Check points.
