A 15 mile fell race that makes the climb up to Stoodley Pike - twice!!!

The route starts with a climb out of Mytholmroyd straight up Daisey Bank, over to Erringden Moor and up to the first visit of Stoodley Pike. Back down to Withins Clough Res, then a steady climb up to Withins Gate. Up a gear along the fast and furious stretch of the Pennine Way before descending near Wardle. A quick climb up and over to the Shepherds Rest before the steady climb back to Withins Gate. Then the runners are forced back down to London Road before the second climb back to Stoodley Pike before its downhill all the way back to the finish. 15 miles with over 2,600ft made this race a tough challenge for anyone.
