Summer Solstice Run 2024

21st June 2024

Our annual pilgrimage to Almscliffe Crag for the Summer Solstice (longest day) saw 30 Striders running up to the Crag in three groups taking on beautiful 5, 6 or 13 mile trail routes. We congregated at the top to take in the views, consume some halfway drinks and snacks and pose for our obligatory group photo before embarking back, navigating nettles, styles and of course the cows.

We were fortunate it was a glorious evening for clambering the rock and thanks to our support crew, including the mini ones, for carrying all that water up to top.
