LA 26 mile route with a 10 hour time limit in the beautiful, remote and varied terrain of the Shropshire/Powys borders which can be demanding in winter.

The route will be divided into four legs and the Route Description gives the grid reference of each “self-clip” passage control point and the three serviced checkpoints, with a reliable indication of the best line between them. A short route may be applied if necessary.
