    13.8 miles and 1980 ft ascent quoted, although I make it a bit more than that.

    Well I've sent off an entry (it was slightly cheaper if you entered in advance - hope mine got there on time!) so I guess I'll be doing it.

    I'm going over for this one. Should be a few Pennine vests there as it's a club champs race for us.

    Seem to remember there was decent food after the race last year.

    Also doing this one.

    went round the course yesterday (tue) with a couple of other dark peakers for a sociable run. lots of paving stones now on some of the wet bits up cut gate, but plenty of heavy ground up by Upper Hey and Wilfrey Nield.

    see you all on sunday

    Went round it a couple of weeks ago. When I was there, there was a huge tree across the forest track about 1/2 mile from the end. Has this been moved?

    Regarding the stones, it looked as though there was enough stone to built a 3 lane motorway all the way over to Howden!

    Yes I lifted it out of the way during the week.
    See you Sunday, Geoff.

    But those wet bits at Cut Gate were the best part of the route! It sounds like they've spoilt it.
