    Post Red Rose 50 2018

    After much effort, East Lancs LDWA have fine-tuned the updated route for this year's Red Rose 50. We listened to the feedback from 2017 entrants and have made significant route adjustments which reduces the distance from 54+ miles to a few hundred yards above 50 miles. We have taken out the hard nighttime slog across Wet Moss and around Bull Hill. The route has now been tested and gpx file available for those who would like to recce.
    As always you get typical East Lancs value for money, 50 miles in the beautiful countryside of the West Pennine Moors, our renowned feeding stations at the checkpoints (typically in Village Halls) and a meal at the end for £33 (£28 for LDWA members + SI booking fee). You also have a choice of running or walking.
    More info at https://www.ldwa.org.uk/challenge_ev...event_id=20123 (including gpx) or enter through SI Entries at https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.ph...&event_id=4374
    Now that the route is final (subject to any last minute changes such as footpath closures), I will also be looking into getting the event ratified as a UTMB counter.
    I plan to get out on some recce runs in the next couple of weeks. If you wish to join me, please contact me.

    No problem. I will be recovering from the GRP 82k hence offering to help co-ordinate the event.

    Good luck at the 82k

    We’re doing Afoot in two Dales 50 in July but could consider RR

    I had customers in the past over that way but have never set foot on the West Pennine Moors

    The GRP is the 24/25/26th August weekend, Andy. Carol and I are going out too to try the Ultra Trail.
    The land at the end of our toes goes on and on and on.
