14C, cool, overcast. A 5 mile run around Houndkirk Moor. Decided to check out part of the route for the Exterminator race in September. Arriving at Fox House the cloud was low, but it gradually lifted while I ran.
Went along Houndkirk Road then found a right turn across Houndkirk Moor. Very soggy underfoot, wet feet again. This route wasn’t on a couple of the maps I looked at. Came out near Blacka Plantation, which is near checkpoint 2, Steping Stones.
Went back over the moor, bearing left which took me to an outcrop rather than the quickest route. Then across the road and down over Burbage Edge. Saw some resting cows (pic) as the path wound its way around towards Fox House.
