Pennine Winter Handicap Series 2021/2022

Race 7 – Saturday 26th February

Venue – Bus turnround in Old Glossop (045948)
Organiser – Ian Warhurst

There are six checkpoints BUT you only have to visit FIVE of them – the choice is completely up to you.
You may visit the checkpoints in any order.
At each checkpoint will be a stake/punch for you to prove you’ve been there.
The optimum route is about 11 kilometres with 620 metres of ascent.

Start/Finish: Bus turnaround in Old Glossop 045948

1: 057954 stream crossing in Shittern Clough.
2: 059961 trig column on Cock Hill.
3: 076956 slight bend in Yellowslacks Brook just below fence corner.
4: 081946 stream junction in Ashton Clough.
5: 093940 below waterfall.
6: 052946 under swing (honestly !) in clearing just below summit of Shire Hill.

The post-event gathering will, as ever, be in the Queen’s Hotel just back down the road from the start at 042947.

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.
