The most important thing this week is that this is a Head torch Run - Please please please bring a head torch which has a good enough beam to enable you to run without the light of others. Also, full body cover is essential - Hat, gloves and long sleeve jacket.

The route.

It'd be tricky to find a bad route from Surprise View Car Park (famous last words!). The plan is to head down into the quarries beneath Lawrence Field Edge, dropping into Padley Gorge and heading up the valley, skirting the edge of Longshaw towards Tegness Rocks. We'll take the higher path running from Grindleford Station to Millstone Edge and hopefully finish with a trot over Mother Cap rock.

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).

How long.

The run is around 10km and we're aiming to run for just over hour or so.

What to wear and bring.

You will need you own personal head torch, hat, gloves and waterproof jacket.

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.

Potentially a drink in the Fox House en route back home :-D
