What is an LTR Regular? To book onto our 'Regulars' you must be capable of running at a steady pace on tricky terrain for 2 hours or more. Unless you are a confident and frequent trail runner we please ask you to try our most accommodating 'Intro' run or at least one of our 'Tasters' first - we can then advise whether stepping up to one of our Regulars would be appropriate for you.

What's the route? This undulating 12km route takes in some fantastic, low light panoramic views and will include a stop under the magnificent 'Halo' an 18m-diameter steel lattice structure supported on a tripod five metres above the ground. From its position on Top o' Slate, Haslingden, it is clearly visible for miles around. 'Halo' is lit at night using the latest LED technology and after dark glows a sky-blue colour, appearing to hover above the town. This dramatic gateway piece overlooks the A56, welcoming visitors to Pennine Lancashire.
