Fast and furious, short circuits of the old quarries around Pensistone Hill

Originally started by Dave and Eileen Woodhead these Junior races accompany the Stanbury Splash, Withins and the Stoop. They all start in the quarry, with a mad dash along the bottom before scrambling up the end of the quarry. U9’s then loop straight back round and down into the quarry before they scramble up again and head to the finish. Older age groups do 1 or 2 laps of the moor, running past the edge of the pond and back round by the trig, each time dropping back into the quarry. First race is 10.30 am for U9’s, followed by other ages at 10.45am
U9’s do one small lap. All other ages 1 large lap except U17’s and U19’s who do 2 large laps
