Popular Country Fair - good day out for all the family. Show starts at noon. The site of the fair, and therefore the start, finish and length of the race, have changed. The fair will be less than a kilometre away from the old site, towards Coniston, and will be well signed. The race will be shorter but with nearly the same amount of ascent. As the start and finish are in private farm fields they cannot be reccied. The best way to reccy the majority of the route is to take the footpath northwest from Little Arrow (1km north of Torver on the A593). (The actual race route joins the walled section of this footpath from the south). After the walled section, continue in the same direction, with another gate and footbridge, to join the old race route just north of the sheep pens and bridge.
