About the Event

See in the New Year in true Sunnywood Style with a supportive run or hike across beautiful Holcombe Moor!

Our NYD route will be around the usual 4-6 miles at an easy, social pace with plenty of opportunity for rest breaks and to take photos of the scenery. 

Here's what you need to know:

  • Dogs are welcome: However please keep them on a lead no more than 2m in length at all times.
  • The route: Between 7 - 9km / 4.5 - 6 miles in length and typically involves around 280m / 920 feet of ascent, some of which may be considered steep. The route encompasses a variety of footpath and bridleway, both rocky and muddy, and moorland which can be wet and boggy.
  • The Sunnywood Project strives to be a Leave No Trace organisation: We ask that, as best we can, we leave only footprints. Do not drop any litter – anyone caught doing so will not be welcome back on a Sunnywood Project event.
  • Start time and duration: We will aim to set off at 08:30am. The event typically takes 2hrs 15mins to 2hrs 45mins depending on pace and enjoyment – As this is a supportive, group event accommodating a range of abilities, please consider the latest time advertised if making plans after the event.

What to bring:

  • Ensure you are dressed for the forecast weather for the event - Please check before arrival and ensure you are dressed appropriately
  • Sturdy footwear such as hiking boots or walking shoes
  • Layers – The temperature will reduce as the event proceeds and can be 2-3°C different on top of the moors
  • Please ensure you bring a waterproof outer layer, top and bottoms
  • Snacks and water for the duration
  • Hiking poles are optional
  • Fully charged phone
  • We recommend having the OS Locate and What3Words Apps installed
