The Pendle Witches 10km is a pretty fast route but this race has a tough 1/4mile finish up to the Castle!
Race HQ is actually hosted between the Royal Kings Arms Hotel and the Lancaster Castle but numbers are collected from the hotel and you finish in the Castle!
The route will be rural taking in the Luneside countryside and will be relatively flat so suitable for new runners and pb hunters!
