It takes you up to the far end of Kinder reservoir and back. Prizes will be awarded for the first second and third male and female runners. You must be 18 to enter this.
- The Junior race, for runners over 8 starts at 11:10 and is 1.7 km long, with 80m of climbing and it follows the same route as last year, up to Twenty Trees and back. Prizes for the first two boys and the first two girls.
Both races will be well marshalled and marked. The races follow FRA rules, so runners must have the appropriate kit with them. See http://www.fellrunner.org.uk/index.php and
