The idea of this is many fold

  1. To remember Mick Clarke, his favourite type of event.
  2. To test out a future race idea
  3. To show off our wonderful local scenery
  4. To introduce the joys of getting off-road to tarmac addicts
  5. To provide an ideal marathon warm-up event of a low-key nature.

There is a tested route map and instructions to follow with minimal route marking and no water stations. ( probably be 1 but not manned).

Dogs on leads are welcome to join us.
