Josh Williams’ Kinder Trigs is more runnable and shorter than the Kinder Dozen and Killer – something like an AL fell race. It’s also hopefully less affected by bracken and swollen rivers so can be completed in most seasons and weathers.
The route can be started at any of the 6 checkpoints and in either direction. There is no fixed route as long as the checkpoints are visited in order from your chosen start point (to create a circular route), and you finish where you started. Your route should respect private land and adhere to rights-of-way and access land. Whichever way you choose to go there will be 3 decent climbs and descents.
The checkpoints are:
– Fairbrook Footbridge – SK 114 901
– Blackden Trig – SK 129 878
– Upper Booth Bunkhouse – SK 102 853
– Kinder Low Trig – SK 079 870
– Kinder Reservoir (path junction below dam wall) – SK 052 880
– Sandy Heys Trig – SK 077 893
Approx. distance: 23km
Approx. elevation gain: +1400m
Josh will keep a record of completions and records for age categories. Please send times,
start/finish checkpoint, clockwise/ anti-clockwise, club and any witty anecdotes to joshw661 [at] gmail dot com
This route was devised during lock down restrictions to make up for Josh missing all those Long A races.
