Route Map and Parking: Park in the lay by just up from the Fox House pub. Running anti-clockwise.


A 'recce' of Tigger Tor but it's not really as it's going to be dark.

The route.

Starting Tigger Tor from the midway point, we'll head over to the Cattle Trough check point, along Burbage South edge and onto the wet wet trod skirting Parsons House Outdoor Centre. Briefly onto Houndkirk Road before nipping off right down the superb single track to Houndkirk Tor. A tricky descent off the tor and the first river crossing leads us over to Houndkirk once more. From hear we'll head onto the new route over Burbage Moor (long tights advisory) leading to Burbage north edge. Drop off the edge and down to the second river crossing. More wet wet grass to cross before chugging our way up onto Higger Tor. Down the other side, past the sheep pen to whizz our way down the single track to the toads mouth boulder. Depending on time we night bop back up to Carl Wark or head back up to the cars through the top of Longshaw.

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). 

Post run.
