Chasing Sunsets: Holcombe Moor

A social Hike or Trail Run during the 'Golden Hour'.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Join The Sunnywood Project on one of their Chasing Sunsets events, designed to explore places that provide a suitable view of the setting sun - typically, these routes will be up hills and in moorland areas.

Each route will cover a distance of approximately 4 miles - however, the emphasis is less on the distance and more on the laughs, the social experience, and opportunity to capture some awesome photographs!

Hikers are Runners start at the same locations, but head out on the routes in opposite directions, passing each other along the route for a group photo opportunity (hopefully with the setting sun in the background!)

Led by a qualified Hill and Moorland team with a wealth of experience and expertise.
