    Groovy Kinder Love

    Can someone direct me to route details/map of this new race scheduled for 30th September 2018 please or perhaps it is being kept secret so that the GPSers can't get hold of it!

    It's no secret, I'm just a bit tardy at publishing a map. Leave it with me, I'll get something online in the next week or so.

    A few non-optimal lines but you will get the jist of it from this strava plot.
    I visited all the "check points"

    There was no need to visit mill hill twice, I should have swung west earlier.
    My climb back up to Mill Hill after visiting Harry Hut was on the wrong side of the grough.
    I was also on the wrong side of the grough climbing Brown Knoll.

    I reckon a winning time would be similar to the Edale Skyline

    Looks horrendous 😁 But I would have done it and suffered, except for the fact that I'm in Malaga that week 😢 Good on you Noel though and hope it is a great success. I certainly enjoyed the Cat+Fiddle relay that you put on.

    Yes, we tried to make it steep.

    Malaga sounds nice. I've just been in the Sierra Nevada (about an hour's drive away, and very nice), sampling some of the walking/running routes from fell running's own Andy Walmsley:

    Does anyone know if there's a list of checkpoints for this?

    4. Path junction 050 918
    5. Path/trod junction 071 893
    6. Trod junction near bridge 060 887
    7. Path/stream junction 065 876
    8. Kinder Low Trig 079 870
    9. Footbridge 087 862
    10. Brown knoll trig 084 851
    11. South Head summit 060 845
    12. Mount Famine summit 056 849
    13. Gate on bridleway 052 864

    Noel - one or two of those grid refs aren't quite right. In particular the South Head summit should be SK 060 845 (062 846 is on the Pennine Bridleway at the foot of the climb) and CP 13 should be SK 052 864 (053 864 puts you at the gate on the track below the bridleway).

    I'm particularly interested to see what route people will take between CP 7 and CP 8.
