Event Details

Swim: Full – 14 lengths of the 30m Hathersage Pool = 420m / GoTri – 10 lengths (300m)

Run: 6km/3km GOTri. Run out from Hathersage Pool and left at the entrance. NOTE there is no
pavement of the left hand side so you will need to cross to the right hand pavement. Head under
the bridge and past the football pitch. At the first marshal you will need to cross the road with CARE
and take a left up the path, over a cattle grid (gate access by the side). Proceed along this path until
you see the GOTri flag by the stone pillar and wall – GOTRI runners will turn at this point, retrace
the route back to the pool carpark and the finish taking care in the unlikely event there are any
runners still proceeding from the swim. All full distance entrants will proceed past the flag and keep
right through the next gate onto the field. Head across the field, through the gate and up through the
trees following the trail keeping to the left and being aware of uneven terrain with exposed tree
routes. After the gate at the top bear left over the bridge then on through 2 further gates keeping left.
At the top, bear left again through another gate then head towards the gravel road. Take a left onto
this minor road – beware of drainage channels under foot and possible farm vehicle movement – and
continue until the gate junction with the main road, when you take a left and it’s downhill on the
pavement into Hathersage. Take the left turn off the main road – taking care as you cross the road
junction – towards Hathersage Pool. Run down towards Odd Fellows Road taking care of parked
vehicles and finish back at the swimming pool carpark. The route will be marked along the way.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU CLOSE ALL GATES BEHIND YOU AS YOU GO.
