Pennine Fell Runners

Pennine Winter Handicap Series
Race 7 – Saturday 22nd February

Venue – Lantern Pike Inn, Little Hayfield (034882)     Organiser - Jim Trueman

Please note that the parking at the Lantern Pike is VERY limited indeed, so it would be helpful if you could carshare, cycle, walk or leave your car in Hayfield and walk.
The route details below are being distributed a couple of weeks in advance to give the Club Recce-freaks time to get their usual fix.
Bring a pen - there will be a letter to write down at each control instead of the normal punches.
It goes without saying that you’ll need a map case or stout poly bag to ensure your answers can be read at the finish.
Estimated optimum route around 8.5 miles with 2303 feet of ascent, depending on which options you choose.
There are seven controls, which can be visited in any order.

1 073886 Gate in wall, west side
2 065883 Footbridge, north side
3 061904 Mill Hill summit
4 077893 Trig Point, north side
5 067892 End of ruined wall
6 062897 Small waterfall
7 077899 Stile number 26

Post-event socialising will be in the Lantern Pike Inn.
In view of the time of year it would be very advisable to carry a headtorch and mobile phone as well as appropriate spare clothing.
