Millbrook Monster multi-terrain 10k

Wednesday 26th July 2017

Event Details

The Millbrook Monster 10k has a mix of terrain, steep climbs, fast descent and some undulations. Some tarmac but lots of lovely trail and a few steps to climb in the last k!

The race starts in Stalybridge Country Park before heading up into the wild above Millbrook. The route crosses the Walkerwood Reservoir dam before a steady climb following the Pennine Bridleway round the western flank of Harridge Pike. If you have the energy to look you to your left you will be rewarded with a great view of Manchester and the Cheshire plain in the distance. Soon the route climbs up on to the moor behind Harridge Pike to it's highest point (370m above sea level) just past the 4km mark. From where, on a clear day, you look ahead to two giants of the Peak District, Bleaklow and Kinder Scout before descending to Higher Swineshaw Reservoir and rejoining the reservoir road. The road gives you a very fast descent off the hill passing all four reservoirs nestling in the mixed woodland of the beautiful Brushes Valley. Shortly afterwards the route reaches it's conclusion with a loop of Stalybridge Country Park to finish back where it started.
