Front Runner Head torch Trail Run - Fox House

20th September 2017

Front Runner Head Torch Trail Run - Fox House

When.
Wednesday 20th September 6.45pm for a 7pm departure.


Where.

We'll be running from the Fox House pub. Please park on Hathersage Road just up from the entrance to the pub. We'll meet by the bus shelter next to the pub.


Route.

The run will be heading off over the top of Burbage South Edge to reach Houndkirk Road. Crossing directly over Houndkirk leads to a nice bit of single track running winding it's way down towards the mini quarry on Hathersage Road. A quick nip over the road brings us to the top of Devil's Elbow on Blacka Moor. With out losing too much height we'll go through the woods and up onto Totley Moor aiming for the trig point. Off the back of the trig we're onto a old wall line and trod leading over towards Big Moor and White Edge. A swift visit here before making a b-line for the Longshaw Pole before trundling our way through the Estate and back to the pub.

The route is around 6.5 miles and will take 60-75 minutes. The terrain is tough in places and isn't ideal for beginners - If you're unsure how you might get on please get in touch :-)

Post run.
We'll pop into the Fox House for a drink and some chips.

Other important things you need to know.
Although we sort the route we ask that everyone who comes along is able to look after themselves and isn't reliant upon any other member of the team, this means you need to have the appropriate equipment (Waterproof tops and bottoms, hats and gloves, water and food, map and compass and an idea of where we are going to be running). 


See you soon.
