This event is being run on the J 9/13 course. Approx gradient - 3%-5%
The start is at the post box near the
junctions of Buxton Rd (Long Hill), Mevrill Rd and Vaughn Rd /Manor Rd. It is approx ½ mile from HQ. Turn right after exiting the HQ and
head south along the A5004. continue straight on over the cross roads.
the start is ¼ mile after the crossroads. The course heads
up Long Hill through the trees, before passing the Shady Oak pub in Fernilee, no stopping for a quick pint!! The climb increases
in gradient slightly after the pub. then continues past the half
way point and up onto the most exposed part of the course which is a
long straight. following the long straight, there is small descent
followed by a left hand bend, which, depending on the wind direction,
provides a welcome break from the wind. From here the road returns under tree cover again and onto the
final run to the finish. The finish will be at the car
parked on the left hand side lay-by just before the right hand turn signed to the Goyt Valley.
