Shatton Moor - Head Torch Trail Run

9th December 2014

Where and When?

Next Tuesday 9th we're heading over to Shatton Moor. For parking please see the map below, there is no car park so please park sensibly. We'll meet by the bridge (See map) at 18:45. The run will be around 10km and will take about over an hour.  It is getting cold out now so please do come prepared. We'll be going up fairly high and on some exposed trails. Fingers crossed for some cloud free skies!

Type of run:

This is a head torch trail run- Now that it's dark in the evenings, we would like you to bring along a head torch, without one I'm afraid you won't be able to  join us. Whilst we starting in the relative calm of the valley, it may be quite windy and exposed on the top of Shatton Moor so please come wearing appropriate clothing for the conditions. If you are unsure of what to bring or how you might find the run please do contact Steve at the shop to check. Please be aware these runs aren't easy :-)

Equipment:

Head torches are essential, if you don't have one, please ring the shop, we'll do our best to provide them but we only have a limited number.

Adequate weather protection is required. If it's raining and a howling wind (yes, we'll still be going out) you'll need full body cover including gloves and a hat. Appropriate shoes are needed for the  route, expect that it may be muddy and a bit slippy underfoot, therefore a good pair of trail shoes are advised. 

Post run:

Maybe a swift drink in the Fox House en route back to Sheffield.
