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 the same route in reverse, with a small diversion to avoid the stepping stones crossing of the Don.
The 2018 Amble’s Revenge will be on Sunday 31st December 2017, New Year’s Eve (we do know that’s not technically in 2018!)
Entry fees in advance: £7 for EA affiliated runners and £9 unattached. Entry on the day: £9 for EA affiliated runners and £10 unattached.
