The Oxspring Hunshelf Amble is a multi-terrain race based on the former Hunshelf Amble. Whereas the former race started and finished in Green Moor, taking in Oxspring en route, the 7½ mile, undulating, mainly off-road race now starts and finishes in Oxspring, passing through Green Moor. The Amble’s Revenge, run around New Year, is approximately the same route in reverse, with a small diversion to avoid the stepping stones crossing of the Don, making it 8.1 miles in total.
ROUTE CHANGE FOR DECEMBER 2019: the route has been changed slightly to avoid a section that has been the source of problems for runners, marshals and organisers over the last few years. After descending from Green Moor along Hunshelf Bank and joining Don Hill Height the route will continue up the road beyond the previous turn off, and turn left onto a public footpath where the road turns right back towards Green Moor. This short footpath leads to Hunshelf Hall Lane, where the route turns left and then left again onto Nine Acre Lane before rejoining the original route to continue across the fields towards Mucky Lane.
