Spire Ultra

Some 10 years ago I walked the then recently opened Round Chesterfield Walk. I was thrilled by the quality of the route with its fine views and sheer variety. Several years later I started running the route and realised it would make a fine ultra trail race. Amendments have been made to the route to take into acount road safety considerations (it doesn’t make much use of asphalt, 95% of the route is on footpath, bridleways or trails, but it does cross 4 busy main roads).

The Crooked Spire – whilst we don’t actually venture anywhere near the church it does make for an interesting point of reference, being visible from many sections of the route.
