Which group am I? Everyone will set off together, within the first 15mins there will be an opportunity to decide which group you would prefer; our 8km Intro (our most accomodating mixture of walking, jogging & easy running) or our 10km Taster (a slightly longer, more challenging insight into our 'Regular' run). The guides are happy to advise on this.
Route: Both routes head out from Skirden Bridge up Gisburn Road and onto the trails towards Fooden Hall Farm. We then drop down towards the River Ribble passing Grove Wood, on our way to Bolton Hall Farm. We then cross Skirden Beck and make our way into Holden. We then pass through Green Ford Farm and Oak Tree Nursery before the final trail alongside the water of Kirk Beck. The Intro is a shorter version.
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.
Footwear & Clothing: Trail running shoes are highly advised as nearly all of the route is off-road. 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.
Social Media: LTR guides take photos and videos which appear on our social media and the LTR website.
