Race starts 7.00pm
This race has a new route in 2023 which is 8.8km (about 5.4 miles). It starts at Reid Park and quickly ascending to Bummie, from there on you’re in the hands of the marshals.
Keep your eyes peeled as there’s the odd arrow / marker on a tree, stone, path or cow (let’s hope Daisy doesn’t move).
One thing is for sure, you’ll more than likely descend to ascend again tackling the slate quarry and maybe the odd field (depending which crops the local farmer has planted).
On the final descent you run out of Reid Park and head towards town with a welcome cheer to be greeted by the familiar sign of a stopwatch and clipboard. If you’d like a quick look at the route, click here.
