A slightly shorter route for 2021 to finish the race just outside of the vilage of Barley to limit social contact during the Covid-19 pandemic. At just under 5 miles, the route is undulating and has a variety of terrrain including track, fields, woodland, lanes and riverside paths. All finishers will receive a bespoke wooden Pendle Witch Medal and prizes this year are for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female only so we can hand them out on the finish line.
