A challenging fell race over open moor and footpaths with runners being treated to climbing Stoodley Pike….twice!
The route will be partially flagged so navigational skills are required.
The race starts and finishes in a field 10 mins from registration up Nest Lane then Park Lane (SD 004 258)
Parking is available at Mytholmroyd Community Centre. NO parking at the Church. Please be considerate to residents if parking on local roads.
Food will be available back in the Church Hall after the event for a small donation which will be given to a local charity.
ROUTE CHANGE FOR 2021
As requested by the landowner, we have changed the route between CP1 and CP2. You no longer descend using the permissive path. Instead, retrace your steps from Stoodley Pike to the gate (GR 978 242). Head south to the next stile (GR 978 241) and follow the flagged route until you reach CP2 at Withins Clough Res (GR 978 229). The route is the same after this point.
