Red Rose 50 - 2018
« on: 15:19:09, 16/07/18 »

As I am sure you all will know, as it was the lead national news item, Winter Hill has suffered great devastation from fire which still burns, now into its third week, with fire engines from all over the North of England passing my front door throughout the day and night.
Hopefully the moors will be fully accessible again by the weekend of September 15th & 16th for the Red Rose 50.
East Lancs LDWA already has a track record of making frequent donations to both Fire Service charities and Bolton Mountain Rescue. We are also looking at ways to contribute to the rebuilding of stiles, footbridges and fences and restoration of wildlife habitation across the damaged moorland. We are not a commercial organisation and endeavour to provide both maximum value and high quality to all our entrants. We are all volunteers.[/size]

The more entries we have, the more we can do.
Fifty miles is a physical and mental challenge but it is very rewarding both physically and with the wonderful scenery in which you are walking or running.

The event offers magnificent value ( 6 of the 8 CPs are in village halls) for 33 (28 for LDWA members) + SI booking fee.
