You have no idea how to deal with this baby!

Did Great Owl Running create a monster by failing to form a bond early on? Should we have sought help from professionals if we felt we weren’t coping? Or was Chevin simply a bad seed; an innately evil trail who no one could have tamed? You could say he is handsome and ingenuous. But looks are deceptive. You'll be moved if not entertained. We Need To Talk About Chevin is to put simply the worst possible scenario when touring the Chevin. Starting on Station Road with the first climb right out of the blocks heading straight up to Surprise view. Then right down to The West Gate and up again, then onwards to the famous Danefield climb then down to a loop of Poolscar Wood. The Far Eastern point is The Fells Plantation where you climb up alongside the power lines and back to Chevin Forest Park before making the final climb up Miller Lane and fly down to Jonny Lane Back to Station Road. The race starts and finishes on Station Road, but registration and post race refreshments come courtesy of The Black Horse, a fine pub with a courtyard ideal for post race celebration and tales of your adventure. The race would class itself as a Category BM fell race with 650 metres over 14km / 2130ft over 9 Miles, not for the feint hearted!
