The race is a 1-lap course is within the grounds of National Trust Lyme and consists of approximately 10K of running, with 272 metres of elevation gain. A tougher longer trail race than our other events with some great elevation and a fully marked and marshalled course, so no navigation required!
The course starts outside the impressive entrance to the main hall and is a tough undulating 10K with a mixture of grass, trail and road running. Enjoy the sights of Lyme and look out for the deer and cattle along the way!
A first mile mainly downhill section is followed by a short sharp climb past the infamous Cage with amazing views over Manchester. Another one mile flatter section then leads to the second climb which takes you to the race summit and then into the woods past The Lantern building. The second half of the course involves more gentle undulations and downhill sections before descending to the finish at the Timber Yard (only a 100m from the start). Here you will be awarded with one of our iconic medals!
The course is suitable for all abilities and a perfect introduction to a more hilly trail experience for beginners.
We will close entries as soon as we reach our limit or on Midnight the night before the race.
