Pennine Fell Runners

Pennine Winter Handicap Series 2021/2022

Race 6 – Saturday 12th February

Venue – Rambler Inn, Edale
Organiser – Will Meredith

There are only four checkpoints on the route which may be visited in any order.

At each checkpoint there will be a stake and a punch and there are squares on your map for punching – hence please ensure you bring a poly bag for your map to keep it legible.

Also you will almost certainly need a compass as well.

The optimum route, although with all the possibilities it’s more than a little tricky to know if there actually is a definite optimum, would be something like 9 miles with 2300 feet of ascent.

Start & Finish – 123854 – Rambler Inn, Edale.

Checkpoint One – 088887 – Kinder Gates; north side of northernmost boulder.

Checkpoint Two – 121883 – Blackden Brook; north side of Blackden Brook opposite stream junction just downstream of crag across Blackden Brook.

Checkpoint Three – 109869 – Grindslow Knoll; west side of wall corner north of Grindslow Knoll summit.

Checkpoint Four – 099863 – Crowden Brook; south-east side of wall corner in Crowden Clough.

In view of the time of year and the strong chance of bad weather (you can’t always get what you want) it would be very advisable to carry a headtorch and mobile phone as well as appropriate spare clothing and poly bag for map.

Please ensure you report to the finish IMMEDIATELY on your return - whether you have completed the route or not.
