How do you make a classic race even better?

Answer: you make it safer, straighter and flatter whilst still retaining the best parts of the race.

That’s exactly what we have just done!

Our new route utilises the cycle path that runs from near the start to Smithy Bridge Road and this takes out a busy main road and traffic at the initial part of the race. It also makes the route flatter and straighter, which means faster times. The race still retains the Hill on Smithy Bridge Road, but this is counteracted by the amazing downhill steady descent to the finish.  

Route Description.

The race starts just down from our new race HQ at Littleborough Conservative Club. It then runs to the mini roundabout and turns down Railway Street. Here it takes a right turn onto the cycle path passing through Stubley Mill Fold. The track then shifts from tarmac to compact path, moving onto the country lane and eventually appearing out at Smithy Bridge Road. Here follows a flat section before the 600-meter steady climb to the top of Lake Bank Road, by Hollingworth Lake. With the energy you have left, there’s a cracking run into the finish - you run on the road parallel to the lake and then turn left to descend all the way to finish at the back of Littleborough train station.

UKA licence and Course Measurement distance certified race.  This race will appear on Power of 10 and Run Britain Rankings.
