Here's a new anytime challenge for you all.
I did the inaugural Traipse this saturday, 4 September
Starting and finishing at the Knot Inn, Rushton Spencer Staffordshire, its a 27mile round robin (with somewhere between 4000-4500ft ascent i think) that involves traipsing round the four trigs of The Cloud, Shutlingsloe, The Roaches, and The Gun . About 3 miles tops of tarmac the rest off road
Start from the Knot and head off road up to The Cloud, via Church in the Wilderness, Woodhouse Green ,Bridestones, approaching the Cloud from the West.
From the Cloud its down the gritstone trail, leaving it eventuality to head into Wincle, up to the Wild Boar, Hammerton Knowl, Higher Nabbs, dropping down to the Cragg Inn and then up to Shutlingsloe
Descending Shutlingsloe we head over to Tagsclough Hill, Gradbach YH and up through Forest Wood to Roach End and up to the Roaches trig
From the trig we head along the Roaches to Rockhall, drop down to Windygates and cross country to Meerbrook. Here we head on to Lower Wetwood and up to Oldhay Top before our final ascent over Gun Moor to the final trig, The Gun
Off the Gun, and head down back into Rushton Spencer and whatever takes your fancy at the Knot
this route covers in bits the following events
cloud nine, kipling kaper, shutlingsloe, the roaches, passing clouds, xmas cracker, leek half, meerbrook 15, gun run
Hope you enjoy it!
