The event, run every year since 1979, raises money for 24th St Paul's Scouts and the work we do with young people of this town.  The long route of 36 miles involves some 6200 feet of ascent, whilst the short route of 26 miles has 3200 feet of ascent. Please see the event website for details.

The routes start and finish at Sowerby Cricket Club, St Peter´s Avenue, Sowerby, HX6 1DF, SE045232 ("South Pennines" Map). This is the Hike HQ.
