Black Combe is a tough race for its distance, with a long second climb and usually quite a lot of late winter weather. Registration is in Silecroft village hall from 10am and the start is at midday in a field nearby. Entry is 7 on the day and includes pie and peas. One day I will get round to organising a barrel of beer too. There's a checkpoint map on the right....

The Caw race is a quiet evening out-and-back. It starts at 7.15pm from the Blacksmiths in Broughton Mills and follows the Dunnerdale route up the Knott, but instead of continuing up Raven Crag it contours right to head towards Caw.

Kirkby is a fast local race over rolling moorland: a mixture of heather, sheep tracks and these days the access tracks for the windmills. It's not that high or steep, and a good race for beginners, but some parts are still quite tough and the moor can be confusing in the November fog. The start is at Beckside at 11am, and registration is in the village hall from about 9.30. The race...
