This race is known as the Joe Salt NYD Awakener
Multi-Terrain race (1 Jan each year) and the Colin Robinson MT race (April). Both
are organised by Andy O'Sullivan MBE and his team.
The usual route is a road start and finish, with a small lap around Cown ressie followed by a big lap up and through the quarry, with a blisteringly fast finish. The ascent on the big lap us slippery and the quarry has lots of rocks in it which are very easy to trip over. While this is a short race it is a little gem. In bad weather (e.g. snow) the course can be changed to 3 laps of the ressie.
