Longmynd Hike

Saturday 6 October 2018

50 miles (80.5 km); 8,000 feet (2,438 m) of ascent

Starting from the Old Cardington Lane at 1 pm on the Saturday the route visits the summits of Caer Caradoc and the Lawley before Pole Bank (part of the Long Mynd), the Stiperstones and Earls Hill and then over the border into Wales to the top of Corndon Hill. Back in England Black Rhadley Hill is tackled before going back up the Long Mynd to Pole Cottage prior to the final ascent up Ragleth Hill before finishing in Church Stretton in the dark (or after sunrise for the slower participants). Compulsory grouping applies after dark with participants grouped into at least threes.

Starters: 541

Finishers: 419 (417 within 24 hours)

Retired: 122

First Man: Pete Vale; 8:11

First Lady: 6th overall; Mel Price; 8:52

Steven Jones: 66th; 13:08; Dark Peak Fell Runners

Trevor Matty: Joint 123rd; 14:56; Dark Peak Fell Runners

The weather was dry but it nearly rained on the Stiperstones when the wind picked up and the temperature dropped. Some frost was observed in the night.
