Introduction

A repeat of the Moss Valley Meander, but starting and finishing at Lees Hall pond. A bit longer than previous races so adding details a little earlier than usual. Run anytime from Saturday 1 August to Sunday 16 August inclusive (Facebook won’t let me create an event longer than 2 weeks, which is why it starts on 3 August but you can run 1-2 August if you want). Map and checkpoints here: (below)
