The Tigger Tor returns January 2021
Following the most recent announcement on the 4th January ‘21, it looks like the new restrictions on exercise and group sizes might be with us beyond March. The current guidelines say that exercise should be done locally where possible and travel is allowed only if necessary. Sadly, travelling to run this race is probably not classed as necessary, so this therefore rules out the vast majority of potential entrants. However, we’ll still continue to accept entries from anyone who has already done or is able to still do the run safely and according to current guidelines. As soon as we’re able to, we’ll get the 2021 Tigger Tor back on track – we’ll update everyone as soon anything changes on the Facebook page
The annual Tigger Tor was established 36 years ago and has grown to become one of the favourite fell races of the season. This orienteering race takes place on the Houndkirk & Burbage moors in the Peak District on the border of Sheffield. It’s a tough fell race over boggy moorland with weather that is often bitterly cold with snow and strong winds – a race for safety-conscious & experienced fell runners.
Due to current restrictions, the race this year is a bit different. Instead of the usual format with a mass start, the race is ‘virtual’ and can be run on any day within January 2021. The start and finish is now at Lady Canning’s Plantation car park and there are only 6 checkpoints to visit on Houndkirk & Burbage Moors.
The race is open to anyone age 18+ with suitable experience (see rules below) and you simply turn up and run at any time and on any day in January – no need to register beforehand. Attempt the race as often in as many categories as you like. Besides the usual fastest individual categories, there are some new challenges including one for the most times run in the month and a team challenge
