Tour of Pendle 16m 4,100'

The last AL of the season and my longest and steepest fell race to date. We organised a Pennine minibus to take 12 of us on the 60 minute journey to Barley and race HQ. The start was bitterly cold which promised clear conditions on top and easy navigation. This isn't a classic route but it's certainly tough and interesting.

There are 6 major climbs (and descents), the most notorious descent being Geronimo (how fast do you dare come down?!); the final climb doesn't have a name but i'm sure it's been given a few unofficial titles by runners over the years! I was so strung out on this last bit that I picked up a half-eaten Murray Mint and ate it. It was delicious!
