The Shady Oak Tough 10K

Next Event: 8th September 2022

Shady Oak 10k Race

After a gap of too many years we are proud to announce the return of the Shady Oak Tough 10K. The race is on a mixture of road and rough stony trails. If it has rained in the days before the race there may be a puddle or two.

The Shady Oak Tough 10K race starts at the Shady Oak pub in the Goyt Valley, climbs on minor roads and tracks up to Long Lane, skirting around Ladder Hill, dropping steeply down to Combs Village. The climb back from Combs is on minor roads, and goes up to the Wainstones. It is a great trial for those that enjoy a good hill. From there it is mostly downhill, mainly on road, back to the Shady Oak. The route is 10k in length (although not formally measured) and has a total of 320m of ascent.

There will be drinks available at approx half way.

Please Note:-  No Dogs.
