Trail Run - Win Hill & Ultimate Direction Demo Event

5th April 2016

Trail Run - Ultimate Direction & Demo Event

When.

Tuesday 5th April, meeting at 6.30 for a 6.45 depart. Please park at sensibly at the bottom of Lydgate Lane (See Map).

Demo Event.

Last week saw the introduction of the new  3.0 Ultimate Direction vests. This includes the Adventure Vesta and Ultra Vesta, 2 ladies specific vests which have been introduced since the incredible popularity of the Jenny Vest. We'll also have the new SJ  Ultra Vest and AK Mountain Vest to try out. They'll be a range of sizes and you can try out to see if you prefer a race vest over a traditional bumbag.

The route.

Equally as exciting as the demo-ing is running is running up Win Hill... in the daylight... after work! We'll be parking at the bottom of Lydgate Lane, heading up the road to the dams. From here we'll skirt round Ladybower taking path off left after a few kilometres. The path climbs gently through the woods eventually depositing us on the Western Ridge off Win Hill. Another few Ks of gradual ascent will see us summit Win Hill. We'll drop off through the bracken joining the Reservoir side path to cruise back down to the cars.

The run will be around 10km in length and take ~1h15m.

If you're unsure as to how you'll find the terrain please feel free to call or email us on (01142669591 or info@frontrunnersheffield.co.uk).

What to wear and bring.

Although the clocks will have changed to BST there is still every chance we might get caught out so please bring your own personal head torch, hat, gloves and waterproof jacket. We expect everyone who attends the have the experience and equipment to be self sufficient on the hills and not be dependent on any other member of the group out running.

Please bring appropriate clothing. If the forecast is bad then come prepared (Hats / gloves / jackets / spare clothes / head torch) and if the weather is blisteringly hot... also come prepared (Sun hat / sun cream / water). 

Post run.

A drink and crisps in the Yorkshire Bridge.
