In short: A grand day out courtesy of the Huddersfield Road Runners. In full: A great and challenging course with three good hills (500-550ft of climbing altogether) but an easy going gentle downhill finish over the last mile. Definitely not one for setting records on but great for tuning up the legs for a faster course or longer distance perhaps. I enjoyed it, it was much more fun than going out and back a dual carriageway.
Race organisation was great, the race is well established. Food and running gear stalls at the start/finish. There was a T-Shirt, water and a sort of flapjacky thing for finishers, very welcome and tasty it was too. Date of review: February 26, 2012
