What is an LTR Regular? Numbered LTRs (e.g. LTR62 - Barley) are our Regular runs. Unfortunately our 'Regulars' are not aimed at everyone who'd like to run on the trails. Unlike our 'Intro' runs, our 'Regulars' are challenging. If you're not actually comfortable running at a steady pace over tricky terrain for 2 hours or more you will struggle on a Regular and unintentionally affect other runners' experiences. Unless you are a confident and frequent trail runner we suggest trying our most accommodating 'Intro' run or at least one of our 'Tasters' first - we can then advise whether you'd be more suited to stepping up to one of our Regulars.

What's the route? The route will circumnavigate the idyllic Cowm Reservoir, taking runners along the edge of Ragstone Brow before reaching Prickshaw Brook above Spring Mill Reservoir. The route then includes a section of the Rossendale Way before skirting the edge of Whimsy Hill and descending into the beautiful Healey Dell Nature Reserve. Next, runners will enjoy parts of the Pennine Bridleway and pass Lobden Golf course before dropping back down into Whitworth.

Is there a cafe? Yes, this weeks designated cafe is Basil's Traditional English Restuarant and is conveniently located at the end of the run. For those that would like to enjoy a post run reward please ask us for directions or follow us there. Unfortunately we can not guarantee availablility for this.(Clean pair of shoes or trainers will be needed - thanks)

Footwear: Trail running shoes are highly advised as nearly all of the route is off-road. We recommend a towel and a change of shoes/clothes for after the run

Clothing: No specialist clothing is required however we do require all runners to dress appropriately to the weather conditions of the day
