Early Sunday morning saunter up Win Hill
Covering part of Dig Deep Trail Ultra 30 course, a chance to learn the route or just enjoy getting out in countryside.
Dig Deep Trail Ultra 30 Recce 3/3 Deja Vue (with apologies and thanks to Mike Jones). For those runners planning on doing the Dig Deep Trail Ultra 30 Peak District race, this third recce will explore the furthest part from Sheffield: the section including Win Hill, Hope, Pindale, Bradwell Edge and Shatton. Win Hill is the steepest climb on the race, but is also arguably its most spectacular section, with terrific views over Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs and much of the Dark Peak.
We will start and finish at Shatton. Lifts will be available; we will discuss this in advance of the session on the group WhatsApp chat.
This run will be at a pace suitable for anyone who has entered or is considering entering this race. You should be capable of covering 17km over hilly terrain, some of which will be at a jogging pace, and some of which will be walking.
Due to the length of the session, the nature of the terrain and the weather conditions we may encounter, please bring the following kit: waterproof jacket, hat or buff, gloves and sufficient food and water for the whole route. Trail or fell shoes will make this route much easier than road shoes, so wear them if you can.
If you're not used to running with this much kit, this will be a good opportunity to practice, as there will be mandatory kit required for the race. Bring a small rucksack or running vest which will be comfortable to use with this equipment in. A map and compass is not required, but encouraged for anyone interested in improving their navigation. The race route is generally not marked so this is a useful skill to learn!
