Andy Robinson has been consulting interested runners and has proposed the following dates and events for the 2012 long trail series…
- Wuthering Hike (Haworth Hobble), Sat 10 March. 33 miles, 4400 ft of climbing. This is a great race.
- Edale Skyline, Sun 25 March. 21 miles, 4500 ft. Testing AL fell race. Fills up quickly, so enter early in the new year.
- Sandstone Trail Challenge Marshals’ event, Sat 5 May. 33 miles, 3700 ft.
- Gritstone Tryal, Sun 29 July, 15 miles, 2000 ft. This is a navigational event, so map & compass work will be needed. I’ve never done it, but it looks interesting!
- Race the Train, Sat 18 August, 14 miles. The only one for which entries are already open.
- Open to Offas, date not set yet, but probably Sat 15 September. 30 miles, 7000 ft(?). An LDWA classic in the Clwydian hills.
- Sandstone Trail A Race, date not set yet: either Sun 30 September or Sun 14 October. 17 miles, 655m of climbing.
