Description

Unassuming, seemingly flat trail that uses a mix of foot paths, disused railway lines, canal paths. That is until you hit Manchester  when it becomes a technical navigation route and starts its heady climb into the clouds of the Pennine range. The Trail seems to sadistically raise and fall until you reach Hadfield where is starts a long slow ramp up to the woodhead tunnels and 'The Wall'.  Once you finally summit, you're less than half distance and the rest of the trail is a mix of stinging small climbs and field runs that are wide open to cruel winds and beating sun in the summer months.  The FKT may be done in either direction.
