inov-8 Pennine Trails September Series Gorple Rocks

Starting alongside the landmark of Worsthorne, the village church, the race begins on the one mile climb of Gorple Road. Making your way up the trail to the Yorkshire/Lancashire border, you'll race towards to the races namesake "Gorple Rocks". A fast turn around, and you reach the point of what makes this one of the BEST trail routes in, dare we say it, the whole country*.

Now begins the 3 mile race back down...

Three things: Number 1: taking on the Downhill at Dusk produces awesome sunsets occurring over Pendle Hill on the horizon. Number 2: The descent is amazing... Have we said that already? Well it's worth mentioning again! Number 3: You'll be getting great support along the way as you pass fellow Pennine Trailers on the way up/down - give a high 5, just remember to stick to the left to ensure there's no bumps along the way.
