Entry is £6 on the night only.
Ossy Oiks starts from a fantastic place. The route is 5 miles long with 1800 feet of ascent. Which makes it a toughy. It has everything from forest roads to rooty single track. Including a hairy descent through the forest at the end. A fell shoe would without doubt be the best footwear. Although a grippy trail shoe will get you round. Click here to see the route map.
