Fitness requirement for a Regular: To book onto our 'Regulars' you must be more than capable of running at a steady pace on tricky terrain for 2 hours or more. We advise to try our Intro or Taster runs first if you are unsure.

Route: This 16km routes heads out from Vaughns Country Cafe, passes over Cartridge Hill, onto Old Mans Hill before picking up the Witton Weavers Way. We then venture towards Belmont Reservoir, crossing Rivington Road and around Wards Reservoir, over Hordern Pasture, along Spitlers Edge and over to Great Hill. We'll then descend off Great Hill and into Tockholes Woods, picking up a trail along the River Roddlesworth before arriving back at Vaughns Country Cafe.

Risk: Each LTR has an element of 'risk'. The very nature of trail running means varied and tricky terrain has to be negotiated. There is a responsibility on each runner to be vigilant and aware of their envirnonment at all times. The LTR guides will give a safety briefing at the start and throughout the run at appropriate times. You have the right to request advice from the LTR guide at anytime. If you choose not to take advice, or to disregard any advice so given, you do so voluntarily and accept liability. 

Etiquette: The LTR etiquette is straight forward: everyone is on the same level and must be treated with the same amount of respect. We operate in a non-competitive environment.

No specialist clothing is required however we do require all runners to dress appropriately to the weather conditions of the day. We recommend a towel and a change of shoes/clothes for after the run.
