Austwick Amble (U12)
TAC Summer Series Race 3 of 9
The senior race starts and finishes in Austwick village centre and is run over a loop circuit of approximately 8 miles/13 km covering a total ascent of 1200 ft/370m. It is categorised by the FRA as category B (medium).
The outward journey over the first 4 miles passes through the beautiful Crummockdale limestone scenery and briefly joins Sulber Nick (which connects the Yorkshire peaks of Pen-y-Ghent and Ingleborough). The return leg descends slowly back through spectacular scenery to Austwick, and to the start point on the village green.
The senior course will be the same as that used last year (ie with the tarmac road back into the village being partially replaced by a section over fields and stiles).
The fastest times over the "new" course are 48:44 (men – Lee Athersmith - 2014) and 60:04 (women – Holly Page - 2014).
The Junior U16 race is run over a shorter distance of 2.25 miles / 4km, and runners are required to reach checkpoint #1 before returning to the village. Fastest time is approx 15 minutes.
The Junior U12 race is approx 1.25 miles / 2km. Fastest time is approx 12 minutes.
