It’s time for our big annual fundraiser again, brilliantly organised for us by Penistone Footpath Runners. Could you help to marshall – or enter the race? There’s a team category and we would like to get a Penistone Leisure Centre Team together, as we have other years. There are loads of prizes donated by local businesses and drinks and food for sale afterwards.
It’s a tough race, from the showground all the way up to the top of Hartcliff Hill – the VERY top! Then down to Langsett, back to the top of Hartcliffe Hill and finishing on the showground again. There are great views, friendly people and lots of support from the marshalls so no chance of getting lost – but in my experience they do fib a lot and tell you you’re nearly there…! You really feel you’ve achieved something when you get to the end.
The 2017 race will be held on Sunday 24th September at 10:30am, with registration from 9am at Penistone Leisure Centre. Don’t forget to leave time for the 10 minute walk up to the showground.
Parking, showers and changing rooms available at the Leisure Centre.
Enter on the Penistone Footpath Runners website, either by printing off a form to post in or online. Entry forms are also available at Penistone Leisure Centre.
There are trophies for 1st Male and Female, prizes for all age categories and teams, extensive spot prizes.
Please contact Annie on 07914 587885 if you can help to marshall.
