Race Date: 30th December
Amble’s revenge is a multi-terrain race organised by Penistone Footpath Runners held on the last Sunday of the year(a reverse of the Hunshelf Amble race which is held in summer).

The finishing mile and a half is downhill and fast again and will be familiar to all truncers.
The balmy conditions (over 10 degrees C) may have contributed to the record turnout with 272 finishers including a dozen striders keen to run off the Christmas excesses:
