This Hilly 16 mile loop which starts from the Cricket in Totley takes in Totley Moor, Blackamoor, Burbage, Higger Tor, Stanage, Padley Gorge, Longshaw Estate then back via Totley Moor. The race normally takes place in early September when bracken is high so it can be tricky to get a good line off Stanage to the road.
