This is it – the final frontier, the cherry on the cake – the last route to seal down the NTCLC Season 4 Grand Prix in the annals of running history – well maybe that’s a tad of an overstretch but I’m sure you’ll like this one last blast – Woodhouse Wastelands. The route brushes alongside both Season 4 Route 9 Orgreave NTWW and also Season 3’s Shirebrook Shimmy.
Its a checkpoint-based route of around 11-12K. The observant will note some corners to be cut and a few choices of different terrains to cross – I have of course created a route for those who simply wish to know where to run.
The route is mainly FLAT with no great peaks and easy-to-follow paths so I’m sure there will be some competitive times for this – I’d say fell shoes are probably better as there’s virtually no road unless you class the hardcore of the Chronoglide Skywalk segment as road. For all you Strava Junkies there are a plethora of segments to be taken. Do expect a fair amount of mud as the majority of the route is in a flood basin.
As per previous “Sid” routes expect it to be more industrial/urban than rural, although you may be pleasantly surprised at how naturalised some of the areas have become: (more info here
Like the Season 4 Route 9 Orgreave route you’ll need some form of transport (legs are always an option for the diehard) to get to the starting point. I’d suggest parking up on Old Colliery Way, S20 1DJ. (Elmwood farm pub/ Greggs ) as parking near the Start / finish can get quite busy.
