Route information
The start and finish venue is Baggeridge Country Park near Dudley, West Midlands. This will be the base for our event, which will provide refreshments to purchase at the Baggeridge Team Room cafe.
The route itself is 97% traffic free, with just a handful of road crossings. The majority of the route is on well surfaced disused railway lines and canal towpaths. Shoe choice is very much a personal thing, but for the last 2 editions, the vast majority of people have managed perfectly in road shoes.
From Baggeridge, the route heads out through woodland, towards Pensnett and Brockmoor via Fen's Pool and the first check point near Merry Hill.
From here it's a mandatory head torch section as the leg includes the 2.7km long Netherton Tunnel, one of the longest in the UK. The second check point is soon after the tunnel exit, at The Fountain Inn, Tipton.
Onto leg 3, and its off towards Wolverhampton on the canal network, via Coseley Tunnel (only 329m long), and the final check point at Aldersley Stadium.
The last leg towards Himley Hall, via Lower Penn and Wombourne takes in the old railway line and Nature Reserve, before heading back through the Baggeridge Woods and the finish and a finisher's medal, plus bottle of Teme Valley Brewery beer.
