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.

The route will head out through the Longshaw Estate up towards the beginning of White Edge, if my memory serves me correctly there's a trod (at least I hope there is!) which'll take is in the general direction of Owler Bar roundabout. We'll cut onto Totley Moor before reaching the roundabout and head over towards Blackamoor woods, leading us nicely back to the cosy fire in the Fox House. The forecast is set to get cold so please come prepared, if it's windy then it could get pretty tough over White Edge and Big Moor. It is really muddy over Totley Moor and Blackamoor at the moment so please bring adequate footwear.

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.

Some tipple in the Fox House... Hot Chocolate!
