Courtesy of Mike Gill – On Sunday 10th November 2019 it’s the annual Remembrance Day Run from Cow Green Reservoir in Upper Teesdale, across the fells to High Cup Nick. We will be stopping where ever we are at 11 am to place poppies on the fell and hold our 2 minutes silence to remember those who gave their lives whilst serving their country.
This is a run with attitude of approx 14 miles but will be ran at a social pace with plenty of stops to take in the views, mainly across fells and moorland using parts of the Pennine Way.
Come prepared for the terrain and possible adverse weather conditions, with trail shoes (or old trainers) plenty of layers and a waterproof. Best to bring a change of clothes for afterwards as you will get wet and muddy.
With good weather you might even get to see the Nick in all it’s majesty, the Nick is a massive glacial valley on the edge of the Pennines.
It takes roughly an hour to drive to Cow Green Reservoir so it will be an early start. Meeting 7.30 am at Ponds Court (opposite Tesco in Consett) to arrange car sharing.
Afterwards we will be stopping off at the Langdon Beck Hotel for refreshmennts so bring some cash.
Most of all don’t forget to bring your poppy with you.
This invite extends to fellow runners of other clubs to join us
