New Senior Men's Route 2012

In 2012 the route was changed slightly and an extra lap added to add to the enjoyment.  This confused the front runners, who accidentally finished a lap early and were disqualified. 

Previous Senior Men's route (2011 and before)

Men's course is 3 laps of pure torture. Draining hills, muddy field that suck your feet into the ground and mud, lots and lots of mud.  As one runner said, "you know you are in for trouble when you start sinking on the start line".  Red Rose league cross country event.  "Marl" is old English for non-combustable waste.

Usually this race takes place the day after everyone's work christmas party, but in 2010 its in November.
