Saddleworth 3 peaks fell run/fast walk
A fast walk or short run around the village of Greenfield and taking in the peaks of Alphin Pike, Aldermans and Wharmston Hill. This is approximately 20km and 1000m of ascent on what is mostly good trails and paths, but there is a bit of road/ pavement as well.
Please meet in the Clarence pub car park, Greenfield at 12.45 (180 Chew Valley Rd, Greenfield, Oldham OL3 7DD), but don't park in the car park itself as it isn't that big and so it's not fair on the pub and their paying customers. That is not to say we won't be paying customers at the end of the outing, but there are roads nearby which can be parked on and St. Mary's school next door has a visitor car park which is often used as overflow parking.
There won't be an equipment check-list as per FRA attendance rules, but do make sure you dress appropriately for the time of year and conditions on the day. I will certainly be taking a pack with some layers, waterproof, hat, gloves, etc. and food/ drink, head torch, map and compass. Look forward to seeing you there.
