Big Moor Head Torch Trail Run

11th November 2014

This week, we are going BIG.... we are going to BIG MOOR (& Ramsley Moor but BIG MOOR is much moor (pun intended) fun so say in a stupid voice)! 

We'll be leaving the car park (See maps)  6:45pm. If anyone would like a lift from Front Runner there are 8 seats available, if you'd like to reserve one please drop us an email, call or you could send a message on Facebook. We'll be leaving the shop at 6:20pm.

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. This week we're going to be heading over to Big Moor, Smeekley Wood and Ramsley Moor. I'm still yet to decide whether to run clockwise or anti-clockwise but will (hopefully) have made my mind up by next Tuesday. There is a moderate amount of ascent and a trip up the knoll in Smeekley Wood is optional. Going over Big Moor is quite exposed so if the winds up some warm clothes will be necessary.

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 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:

A little natter and depending on time maybe a drink at the Cricket Inn in Totley :-)
