Challenging 8 mile, multi terrain race.
The Ambles Revenge is the winter race of The Amble, which was run in July. It is a mixture of cross country, road and fell the race goes in a clockwise direction, starting on the Trans Pennine Trail at Oxspring. It proceeds for 8 miles with over 1,200ft elevation, over farmers’ fields, quiet country lanes, through woodland and over many stiles towards Green Moor and back to Oxspring. The weather is usually poor & wet and there were parts that were very muddy and wet underfoot making it a real slog in parts. Undulating and hilly, it is certainly not an easy race. Last year we also had the wind, not a gentle breeze but on the upper parts I would say gale force – enough to knock you off balance! The course was well marked and had plenty of wet and windswept marshals all very cheerful and giving lots of encouragement. I believe all enjoyed the race, it was such a fun event with a brilliant quality gift such as a tee towel or beanie. It is suitable for everyone and speaking for myself, the more mud the more everyone walks so I didn’t feel guilty for not running the whole course, There are many prizes in the following age categories SM, V40M, V45M, V50M, V55M, V60M, V65M, V70M, V75M, V80M, SF, V40F, V45F, V50F, V55F, V60F, V65F, V70F, V75F and if we have any V80F.
