SAT.SEP 4th. CROSS KEYS ROAD AND FELL RELAY (R). 1.00 p.m. 2x3m road plus 2×2.5m fell from the Cross Keys Inn, Uppermill, Saddleworth (GR SE008062). £10 per team of 4 on day. PM. Over 16. Junior teams (U18) need signed consent of parent/guardian. FULL KIT/EQUIPMENT must be brought to event. Kit check at start. Website: saddleworth-runners.co.uk
Each road leg does two laps of a fairly hilly course – Starts at the cross keys pub, goes down past the Church Inn then up towards running hill pits, descends back to the cross keys then round again. Not an official measurment but looking at memory map about 140m of climb over the 3 miles – The fell leg goes from the keys up over Rocher Brow, descends almost to the A635 heads north for a short distance before heading back over the brow to the Keys. Again not an official measurement, but I make it to be about 230m of climb over the 2.5miles.
We already have 1 vets team sorted and entries will be taken on the day.
