A quick update with some information about the run on Sunday, the “Lemmings Leap” sounds interesting. Text taken from the Offas Orror website: Offas Orror
2012 sees the launch of our new and improved route. With a new start point and convenient event base at Mackenzie Hall, Brockweir, the route follows a figure of eight course on the east side of the river Wye.
The route takes in sections of the famous Offas Dyke path, and tracks and trails around it. All the previous favourite sections are still in, including the infamous ‘Lemmings Leap’. The route is a little under 20km with a height gain (according to the map data) of approximately 670m (2200 feet). You will encounter hills, forest tracks, singletrack footpaths, steep descents, riverbank paths, less than 1km of tarmac … and of course, the
beauty of the Wye Valley (if you’ve got time to look at it).
