Organiser's Description



(approx 14 miles) TRA Permit 6581

Minimum age 17


 (approx 6 miles)

Minimum age 16

After following the Admiral McHardy Trail for two years we decided to explore a little more and for the next two years found you 700 feet of climbing and descent (all in the middle third) still utilising the trail to and from Danbury Hill. Last year we changed the route there and back and the hilly section, but still got you over 700 feet of climb again. Guess what we have found another 700 feet of climb for you but shortened the distance to 14 miles. Enjoy.

Please note this is a hilly event and we hope to provide drink stations, but always advise carrying some refreshment of your own.

By contrast the Chelmer Trail is a flat trail in the Chelmer Valley.
