  • I haven't run the event but I live around the route and do my own training there and I can definately say its a hilly part of the country.

    All details needed are on the link water stops etc. if you want a flatter 20 miler the hull 20 is the following week and is well known for being flat and is the one I am doing for my vlm training.



    Good luck.

    Spen is pretty much a figure of 8 type course. There's only one water station but you go past it 3 times (twice in one direction, once the opposite way). Cups only for info. Really good race, very cheap to enter but it is pretty hilly. I like it though. I'm prob going to enter this just as a training run to save doing a 20 miler around my usual routes. That's what I did last year and I enjoyed it.

  • I train quite a bit on hills so just hope it is enough this will be my furthest run hope weather is ok :0)
