Around a good while, but more recently added to the Gritstone Series as one of the ‘long’ events and boy has it become popular! Perhaps because of the access or the relatively easy 9.8 miles (as opposed to the even longer stuff later in October). Back again this weekend (Sat) and likely to be wetter than an Otter’s pocket!
The race starts and finishes at Curbar Primary School, S32 3XA. It is 9.8 miles long and covers a variety of tracks and paths through Curbar, Frogatt and Baslow. Marshalls will be in place around the course and will be well marked. There are two road crossings to be aware of, one at the beginning of the race on Bar Road and another over Clodhall Lane. After the Bar Road crossing you will cover a section of The Green, Curbar. All will be marshalled however please be extremely cautious as the roads are not closed. You will also negotiate a number of gates and stiles in the race. Please do not cross walls or fences and be respectful of the surroundings. You may encounter cattle and horses on the route, again please be extremely cautious if this situation arises. The route is the same as recent years.
Entry on the day is £7 but pre entry is available at a reduced price of £6. Please note that only forms and money received before 30th September 2019 will be accepted. All payments must be clearly marked with runners details.
