 Course Information

 The race starts and finishes at Cliff College, S32 3XG. It is 8.73 miles long and covers a variety of tracks and paths through Curbar, Frogatt and Baslow. Marshalls will be in place around the course and as it is a new race it will be well marked this year. There are two road crossings to be aware of, one at the beginning of the race on Bar Road and another over Clodhall Lane. After the Bar Road crossing you will cover a section of The Green, Curbar. All will be marshalled however please be extremely cautious as the roads are not closed. You will also negotiate a number of gates and stiles in the race. Please do not cross walls or fences and be respectful of the surroundings. You may encounter cattle and horses on the route, again please be extremely cautious if this situation arises.

The race is part of the Gritstone Series, details of which may be found here:
