Location: Netherwood Academy, Dove Valley Way, Wombwell, Barnsley, S73 8FE (some sat navs may take you to the rear of the school). You will need to take the Netherwood Roundabout, off the A633, Wombwell

Route: The walk will start and finish in Wombwell, Barnsley and begin in a westerly direction on the Trans Pennine Trail, turning left towards Oxspring. The route then heads north from Thurlstone and gains height to give expansive views over Wooldale, Holmfirth and The Holme Valley. Dropping down for a late afternoon dinner the route ascends on to The Pennine Way with a short hop to find the summit of Soldier’s Lump on the iconic Black Hill. The route carefully descends Laddow Rocks on the Pennine Way, potentially offering views over Longdendale in the evening light, and promising a gentler section in conjunction with the Longdendale Trail. The Pennine Bridleway follows and you arrive at the eastern edge of The Great Ridge. For most, this will be the early morning section of the route and even in the dark this undulating boundary of the Dark and White Peak will be a highlight of the route. Both the marshals' and the main event have breakfast in the Hope Valley with the route ascending then traversing the gritstone edge of Stanage towards Moscar. The route takes The Sheffield Country Walk back across the River Don and into Wharncliffe Wood, entering Skelter country. The route eventually reaches the last checkpoint at Elsecar, with the last few miles back along The Trans Pennine Trail (Barnsley Boundary Walk). Turning left at Old Moor RSPB the route arrives back at Netherwood ALC, Wombwell, and the completion of the LDWA's 2022 flagship challenge event: The Trans-Pennine 100
