What is an LTR Regular? To book onto our 'Regulars' you must be capable of running at a steady pace on tricky terrain for 2 hours or more. Unless you are a confident and frequent trail runner we please ask you to try our most accommodating Intro run or one of our Intermediate (Taster) runs first - we can then advise whether stepping up to one of our Regulars would be appropriate for you.

What's the route? The route heads out over Downham Green and over the historic Downham Bridge on the way to the famous remains of Sawley Abbey (founded in 1147). We will then cross the bridge over the River Ribble, pass the impressive Moorland Boarding School and hit trails down along the river bank beneath Grindleton, towards West Bradford and a mid-run river crossing (optional). The route then heads into Chatburn, passing limestone quarries and finally running beneath Worsaw Hill, also known as Little Pendle, to return to Downham.

Is there a cafe? Yes, this weeks designated cafe is Greendale View Kitchen and is just a two minute drive away. 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
