    Long tour of Bradwell

    Who's doing this on saturday ?

    What shoes are you wearing ? Noticed that the kit list stipulates fell shoes suitable for the terrain. Was going to use trail shoes but presumably these won't be allowed.

    Ay up dave, me neither but they say you need : Fell running shoes that in the organisers opinion are fully suitable for the type of rough terrain that will be encountered.

    Looking forward to this one tho. Are you having an outing over to cracken edge tomorrow ?

    Just had a quick look at the route, looks like it would be fine for trail shoes.

    I think Dark and White are saying that about footwear so those not used to that kind of terrain don't turn up completely unprepared with road shoes. A decent pair of trail shoes are fine for that sort of ground and distance.

    I suppose you could take fell shoes just in case?

    I fancied this when it was first announced, put it in my diary, started a thread on here way back in April then largely forgot about it. An ultra in the Peak - I'm very temped

    Well done everyone who turned out today, it was a scorcher. The legs are officially trashed, did the Trunce Monday, Cracken Edge Wednesday and this one today. The old map reading skills also got a workout as well as my legs.

    Tour of Bradwell - Vasque

    The web site for this seems to indicate the route is not issed until the day - when you register. Can anyone PM me a copy of the route from last year (assuming it is the same route). Thanks.

    Would grid refs and route description do, MM?
