This race is known as the Joe Salt NYD Awakener Multi-Terrain race (1 Jan each year) and the Colin Robinson MT race (April).  Both are organised by Andy O'Sullivan MBE and his team. 

The usual route is a road start and finish, with a small lap around Cown ressie followed by a big lap up and through the quarry, with a blisteringly fast finish.  The ascent on the big lap us slippery and the quarry has lots of rocks in it which are very easy to trip over.  While this is a short race it is a little gem.  In bad weather (e.g. snow) the course can be changed to 3 laps of the ressie.
