The Course

The route is pretty simple, run from the Stickle Barn and hit the summit of Harrison Stickle

The Course:

Its short, its simple and its a real beast. Start in the Stickle Barn Carpark and head straight up to Stickle Tarn via the main footpath on the east side of Stickle Ghyll, take a very short scramble on route and then jump the 'stepping stones' to gain the path on the west side of the ghyll. With legs on fire and lungs hanging out, make the final ascent to Stickle Tarn and a quick energy re-supply at the manned drinks station.

Now the onslaught continues; head up a well marked trail to the west of Stickle Tarn to ascend the eastern flanks of Harrison Stickle. Push as hard as you can, as there isn't far to go, follow the flags and signs to hit the rocky summit of Harrison Stickle and the finish.

Follow the same marked route to descend and cheer others on.
