Great Longstone Peak Raid

With a day off work and a fabulous forecast I ran the first of the Explore Events MapRun programmes this morning. I had down loaded the MapRunF app but I couldn't work out how to start the event at the village centre so simply uploaded a GPX from my watch.

I'd been for a run yesterday and intend to go out on Sunday too,  so didn't want to 'race' this. Not that there was much race in my legs. The Great Longstone area is heavily quarried and the event was based around Longstone Edge and Moor so always more ascent and descent to do. I completed with 5 minutes to spare having decided against 2 checkpoints just off my route so I could have misjudged it either way. I missed another point by picking the wrong path at one point. So there was potential of a slightly higher score.

The main thing was that I spent 2 hours running somewhere I've not been for many months.
