About the Event

Take on the whole of the challenging, yet stunning 43 mile, 5825ft of ascent loop, of the Rossendale Way in a day as a Runner or Hiker, with the option to be guided.

The Rossendale Way is an undulating route that will provide rewarding views across Bacup, Rawtenstall, Haslingden and Whitworth. 

You'll cross over open moorland; pass by reservoirs and through ancient woodland. 

Like all of our events,  we look forward to completing the distance with the camaraderie of other like-minded people around you – if you choose so, our friendly guides will be running / hiking the whole route with you to offer a supportive pep talk when required. However, we also won’t be offended if you do want to push on ahead without us.

You will have 16 hours to complete the event, with timed safety cut-offs at the later aid stations.  

What's included:

• Regular check points with ample aid station food and drink supplies

• Secure car parking at the start / finish line.

• Sunnywood neck gaiter

• Sunnywood Rossendale Way memento
