Details:

Senior Point to Point "Haigh Cup" race.

This is the third and final race in the 'Winter Championship', after the Tinker Cup and Club 6.  All of these races are handicapped, but the Championship is based on an aggregate best-time basis.

The same Point to Point course is run for three years; this is the second year for the current course, meaning it will change to a new route in April 2025.

Registration - £0 (donations welcome)   6.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. (6.45 p.m. for earliest starters)

First runner off at around 7.00 p.m - please allow time to get to the start.

Points to be visited this year:

Stile from sharp bend on Netherton Moor Road into East end of Spring wood GR 1341 1252

OTHER POINTS in any order that you wish

  • Stile from lane into fields above Crosland Edge G.R. 1060 1192
  • Where path to Wood Nook meets lane down to golf course & Brown's reservoir Point at the edge of Manor House farm yard, Wilshaw G.R. 1172 1001              

NB: Netherton Moor Road is out of bounds

Footpaths to be strictly adhered to.

As the name implies, the Point to Point race involves visiting points using your own route choice, with runners setting off at intervals in reverse order for a theoretical mass finish.

The race is restricted to roads and public footpaths, although what constitutes a public footpath is subject to interpretation; paths such as that passing through Cliffe Wood behind Neiley is not on any map, but is definitely in general use!

See map for details.

AKA ‘The Haigh Cup’, this unique race involves choosing your own route between three identified points.
