The shindig is back to its original beautiful home in Corfton after a year on tour. The race starts and finishes at The Sun Inn Corfton, and the home of Corvdale Brewery. Beautiful views, hard climbs and great bling will be the reward for those tackling this wonderful route. Awesome pub grub and ales are on hand afterwards 🙂

Please be aware there is a 7 hour cut off for this event, with the race kicking off at 10AM.

We are hoping to offer free camping next to the pub this year, but in the event that it falls through there are a number of camp sites local to the pub.

This course is ideal for people both new and experienced trail runners. It will be fully marked so no map reading will be needed. There will be a GPX file with final instructions too.

Race Permit applied for.
