It’s a run of approximately 12 miles, at an easy pace, starting from the Punch Bowl in Edmundbyers at 8:00am. Running out to a lone tree at the foot of Bolts Law Fell, which is then decked with baubles and tinsel. If we’re lucky, we’ll be met at the tree by Bounders bearing sweet mince pies and mulled wine to refuel for the return journey.
It is mainly across fells, moorland and fields, and although mostly on good tracks, it will be very wet and boggy in places, so again, please come prepared for the terrain and possible adverse weather conditions, with trail shoes (or old trainers), plenty of layers and a waterproof. Also, a change of clothing for afterwards will be handy, as you will get wet and muddy!
If you are unsure where the meeting point in Edmundbyers is, then we can arrange a meeting at Belle Vue for car sharing, or to head over in convoy.
Don’t forget to bring some baubles and tinsel, and as always, festive hats are a must!
