Shining Tor is a well established race. Taking you from the Errwood reservoir past the ruins of Errwood Hall, up to the summit of Shining Tor and along the ridge to Pym’s chair, giving you fantastic views of the Cheshire plain (weather permitting).
I reckon we have the best registration venue in the Errwood sailing club, of any fell race, but I might be biased.
As has happened in recent years, Buxton Mountain rescue team will marshal the course, which I think makes it the best marshalled. But I am biased.
Last year the profit of £1200 was donated to Mountain rescue so they can keep on helping those who get into trouble on the hills surrounding the Goyt Valley. They are all volunteers but need cash to maintain equipment and resources, so look on your entry fee as an insurance premium that you hope to never call on.
Nothing has changed, start time is 7.30. though after last year we are saying that there will be a time limit of 90 minutes to complete the course. Also after last year you will be required to bring full FRA kit, though it is up the organiser on the day to say if it is needed.
