Red Rose 50 - gpx now available
« on: 08:26:32, 01/06/18 »
After much effort, East Lancs LDWA have fine-tuned the updated route for this year's Red Rose 50 which takes place over the weekend of 15th/16th September. We listened to the feedback from 2017 entrants  and have made significant route adjustments which reduces the distance from 54+ miles to a few hundred yards above 50 miles. We have taken out  the hard slog across Wet Moss and around Bull Hill. The route has now been tested and gpx file available for those who would like to recce.
As always with East Lancs (and other) LDWA events you get magnificent value for money. The route takes in 50 miles in the beautiful countryside of the West Pennine Moors, feeding stations at the checkpoints (typically in Village Halls) and a meal at the end for 33 (28 for LDWA members + SI booking fee). You also have a choice of walking or running.
