The accurately measured 10km course consists of two laps of tarmac park road on Centre Vale Park, followed by a single hilly lap of rural and town centre roads finishing back on the park road.
The high point of the course is just before half way on Todmorden Edge, before the long descent down to Bacup Road and back into town along Rochdale Road. Total climbing is 219m.
Here’s a height profile:
The race HQ is Todmorden Cricket Club Centre Vale, OL14 7BS (see map below). There is parking space, changing facilities, food and a bar. Registration and prize giving will take place in the well-appointed main function room. There is plenty of parking space on and near to the cricket ground.
