The Three Towers Ultra is a tour round the moors of Lancashire.  It starts at Darwen, just south of Blackburn, then ranges over the moors to the west, via three towers:  Jubilee, Rivington and Peel.  There’ll be a lot of runnable moorland tracks, and it looks like there’s a fair bit in common with the route of the Anglezarke Amble, so if you’ve run that you’ll know what to expect.  A hard day out, and watch out for the October weather.
