HALF X RUN MAP

 

The run section is an out and back 13 mile (21km) half marathon run over roads and mountain trails to the summit of Fairfield.

 

Heading North from T2 competitors take the back roads for 1.5  miles (2.5 km) to the hamlet of Rydal before entering the mountain section. Once through Rydal competitors face the steep, pitched (stone steps) switchbacks leading to the top of Nab Scar 1,492 ft (455m).

 

At the top of Nab Scar the climb becomes less steep and the path opens to a wide grassy ridge, taking in the false summits of Heron Pike 2,007 ft (612m) and Great Rigg 2,513 (766m) before summiting Fairfield top 2,870 ft (875m).

 

Competitors return to the finish at Waterhead retracing the out route.
