In short: Undulating hills on/off road. Free cake and coffee at the end In full: Pretty tough course, was raining when I did it and this made the off road sections much more difficult and didn't allow quick descents because of the slipperiness. Would be a struggle to get a PB on this course Date of review: May 18, 2013
In short: Well organised event with challenging climbs In full: Not for the faint hearted, this run is challenging but really good fun. A mixture of tarmac, track, grass - very well organised, good marshalling. Would definately do again Date of review: May 21, 2012
In short: Brilliant brilliant race - loved it! In full: Lovely route, some challenging climbs and fun descents, and super cake and tea at the end. Medal and certificate for finishing. Great stuff! Date of review: May 20, 2012
In short: A circular route that feels mostly up with a bit more up In full: Excellent organisation. Well marshalled route. It's hilly, off-roady with splashes of Tarmac & down hill. Tough but fair. And worth it for the chocolate cake at the end! Loved the medal this year :)) Date of review: May 20, 2012
In short: A hard race, but superbly organised and friendly In full: This race is a challenge...many steep hills and I think the so called flat roads go up slightly also in West yorks... Wet and slippy today so the downs tricky also....good fun though now i have recovered
A friendly atmosphere with cake and tea afterwards. A small race that is very well run.
To increase funds for the church having cakes and tea for supporters would be great for a small fee / and more road signs to warn cars that racers are there may help.
In short: Hard but enjoyable race In full: 130 of West Yorkshires finest set out for the Calderdale Moors via Steep Lane (to call a lane "steep" in this area means it's steep!). The race raises funds for St Peters Church and the good people of the congregation take care of the organisation including tea and cakes for finishers.
Will be back next year! Date of review: May 23, 2011
