Club Off-Road Run Saturday 14th Jan 2017

January 7, 2017

As you may have noticed from recent communications, we had a club off-road run planned for Sunday 15th Jan, a little distraction for those not doing the Brass Monkey Half-marathon.  Unfortunately, the date also clashes with the Stanbury Splash Fell Race, so in an attempt to be as inclusive as possible, we have brought the date forward to Saturday 14th Jan.

Apologies for the change, particularly if you had made arrangements to suit.  The plan is to meet at 09:00 at grid reference SE170539, that’s the rough layby by Beecroft Barn on the Blubberhouses to Timble road.  Please see map below:

Parking is a bit limited here, so please car-share if you can.  You’ll spot the barn on the left if you’re coming from Blubberhouses, it’s got a For Sale sign outside so you won’t miss it.

Our route will take in just over 11 miles and have an interesting twist at the end.  It will go over some easy trails to start with, but the terrain will get rougher and off-road shoes are absolutely essential, fell shoes recommended if you have them.  It will be wise to bring along a jacket, as we will go over some exposed ground and if the weather is a bit iffy you will need protection.  I estimate we will be out for 2 – 2.5 hours.

I really hope you can make it.  Please contact me via if you have any questions
