Start: Youlgrave Village Well, Moor Lane. 

Finish: The George, Youlgrave


Parking: Alport Lane Playing Fields, Youlgrave. We're a working village ie there are tractors. We're also very pretty so attract visitors ie we can be victims of random acts of parking. Please bear this in mind when you're parking. We are taking over the playing fields for parking however it is limited so please car share.


Race Info: It's the 1st edition of Youlgrave's Pommie Panter . The race is run under Fell Running Association (FRA) competition rules and licence. We're a 'proper' traditional Peak District roller of a race. The terrain is rough trails, open fields and an opening section of country lane. There'll be small sections of low level technical parts and a swamp. The route navigation isn't complicated and its all on public footpaths plus we'll have marshals and signs up. BUT this is the 1st edition and we're limiting entry numbers so we can concentrate on getting it right. So you may very well end up solo or in a small group where nobody knows the route. If you're not experienced ie ok with map reading/path finding or familiar with the area's paths a course recce is STRONGLY recommended. The route is all public paths, so you can recce at your leisure. There will be a group recce on Sunday 12th March being done as 1 of Youlgrave Harriers' open invite guided runs. Details of the group recce are here  (all free etc, just add your name to a list so we know numbers)
