The 2021 GoBigMoor Fell Run and Family Walk planning and preparation is nearing completion. The event will take place on Saturday 30th October and is centred in Holmesfield, Derbyshire and starts from the Village Hall at the back of St. Swithin’s Church.
Unfortunately, we were not able to organise the 2020 event due to the pandemic, after a lot of discussions and ‘could we/should we’ this year’s event is now going ahead (at short notice). We are hoping for good weather, although the event will be run come rain, wind, or shine! Please be prepared for bad weather as the wind and rain can make the going hard work over the hills and open moorland.
Separate circular routes are planned around Cordwell Valley, Big Moor and Totley Moor for runners and walkers, following the same paths and tracks as 2019.
The 13-mile route is for fell runners. Directions are provided and most of the route will be ‘way marked’. This is an FRA BL grade event, map, compass, whistle, and body cover must be carried by competitors.
The Family route is for walkers only (and dogs on leads), directions and way marking make this suitable for casual walkers and families who want an enjoyable morning walking along paths, tracks and fields.
