This weekend taking on the triple including the Monsal Trail parkrun for good measure, Dan Jenkins seized the opportunity to visit his favourite pie establishment in Bakewell on the Saturday and stock up on winter sustenance. His first race after his parkrun comes in the form of the Baslow Bolt. Classed as a FRA Medium B fell race with 12 Km’s of mixed trail and 400 m’s of ascent! The Baslow Bolt is organised under FRA rules, and is fully marked & marshalled. The route climbs away from Baslow through fields towards Hassop then proceeds along the beautiful ridge path through Bank Wood and Bramley Wood (a little known local gem). It then drops down to the River Derwent and Calver / Curbar, before climbing up to Baslow Edge through a mixture of limestone trail and gritstone then finally descending Bar Road into Baslow and the finish. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Baslow St Anne’s Primary School PTFA and Baslow St Anne’s Church buildings fund.
Dan jogged around this one in 1:24:56 well done!
