Description

The event is being run on the UH91 course - Smithams Chimney (1.2 miles / 1.9km)

Proceed from the HQ to the top of the High Street. Continue up Middle Street (the village shop and hall will be on your left). Carry on past Culver Lane and Barn End. The course starts beyond the last house in the village, before the junction for Wallace Lane. Beside a road gully and telegraph pole (there should be a white line painted on the road).

The gradient increases gradually until you reach the snaking turns, where it ramps up to around 16% for a hundred metres. To add to the difficulty the road surface is particularly poor here. Once through the twists and turns you reach a plateau with beautiful views across the Chew Valley. Something to look forward to on the way back down! After this respite, the road kicks up for the final climb to the summit. Come out of the woods and continue to the crest of the hill, beside a clump of short trees. Again, there should be a white line painted on the road.
