I'm looking into doing this event at the start of April: http://www.fourinnswalk.org/
There's a route description and GR'd checkpoints, so I've plotted my route in Memory Map. Trouble is, some sections have very little description, whilst others seem to rely on local knowledge.
I intend to reccy the route before the day and wondered if any of you have first-hand experience of the event and, better still, a Memory Map Overlay that you could share.
Thanks and regards
Forgot to mention, I've already asked the organisers and all they have is the written information that's already published on the website. They'd like my tracklog once I've finished, which of course I'm happy to give.
I covered the Torside to Snake Inn section yesterday. Got as far as the footbridge over the River Ashop but couldn't see an obvious crossing Fair Brook. I'll have another look at that next weekend.
Early conditions over Bleaklow Hill were grim: raining and the mist was down. It dried off Hern Stones but still no visibility until the return leg was started.
I covered Snake Inn to Barber Booth on Saturday - fantastic weather. Horrible trek back to Snake via Brown Knoll and Kinder Scout - never doing that again.
We were amining for 14 hours, but based on how we've permformed on the Torside to Barber Booth stretches, I think 16 hours is more realistic. We'll still pace for 14 hours and see were we're up to at Edale.
Team 75, start time 07:15.
Thanks for your help.
I used Dave A's gpx file and found it very useful. (Thanks Dave)
We finished the walk in 17hrs 44mins. Weather was perfect, event organisation faultless.
If you want a well run, long distance walk I'd thoroughly recommend this event.
