Seniors
Fab senior route with a brisk start up Western Beacon then crossing open moor to loop down, around and up to Weatherdon, some quick track followed by a tussocky scramble to take you past Glasscombe Ball then fast down to the stream crossing at Scada Brook, (what goes down must come up) and a sharp rise up to Ugborough Beacon then a second stream crossing at Lud Brook, and across to Western Beacon for a very fast descent to the finish at the Rugby Club. There are clear tracks and trods in places but sound route finding will help with off-piste sections. Juniors U17 race in senior race.
