In the afternoon there will be a steady ascent up Dovestone Clough before turning south towards Whinstone Lee Tor and across to Cut-throat Bridge on the A57 before finishing at 4.30pm.

There will be the alternative option to take a stroll along the eastern edge of the reservoir and cut across to the finish via Ashopton and the fringes of Ladybower Wood
