Penistone Footpath Runners very kindly hold this annual event in aid of Penistone Leisure Centre and it is a big boost to our funds. The Penistone Hill Race is a multi-terrain race: approximately 7 miles (11.5km) with 890 feet (271m) of ascent. It goes from Penistone Showground, right up to the top of Hartcliffe Hill, down to Langsett, back up to the top of Hartcliffe Hill and back to Penistone – stunning views but it’s quite a challenge!
The 2016 race will be on Sunday 18th September and registration is at Penistone Leisure Centre. There is more information on the Penistone Footpath Runners’ website and the entry form will be available there nearer the time.
Are you interested in competing, either as an individual or in the Penistone Leisure Centre team? If so, now is the time to start some training – either at one of our classes or getting out for some runs over the summer. We’ll let you know when there is more information.
