This page is to inform members, and those interested, about events and training outside of the regular club sessions, including and not limited to:
- Seasonal Training
- Event Specific Training (Marathon Training groups etc)
- Race Recce Runs
- One-Off’s (Yorkshire 3 Peaks etc)
The idea of this page is to provide information and resources to help include all of the club in activities happening within the club community and to help those new to the club find out about what is happening.
Winter Training Runs
Haworth Hobble Recce 1 (First 14 Miles)
Saturday 25th January
This run will start in Haworth and run in a Westerly direction following the trails along a number of reservoirs to Long Causeway. This section of the route is on a mixture of hard packed trail, flagstones, soft trail and short sections of road. As with most of the course, there are a lot of exposed areas, so make sure you pack appropriate kit. We are also likely to be out for around 3 hours as this is a recce to gain a knowledge of the course for those racing in March, so make sure you take enough food and water.
Haworth Hobble Recce 2 (Last 18 Miles)
Sunday 16th February
Starting at Long Causeway, where the last recce finished, we will take a more scenic route back to Haworth, first heading south through Todmorden and climbing up to Stoodley pike and then changing direction to head back North East, up the cobbled road to Heptonstall, to come back down the other side to then climb steadily again out of Hardcastle Crags for an ‘undulating’ last 6 miles. This is a tough but enjoyable route, but expect to be out for 4 hours, so as with recce 1, ensure you have the correct clothing, food and water to get to the end as the weather is changeable and there will be nowhere to buy food on the way around.
Yorkshire Three Peaks
Saturday 22nd February
This run will be an attempt to complete the 24 mile loop taking in the three peaks of the Yorkshire dales (Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside, Ingleborough) within 6 hours (Weather dependant). This is a tough route with around 4,800ft of elevation change. Those wishing to come should be able to navigate the course from a GPX if the group splits, be experienced over this terrain and distance and have suitable equipment and resources to be self-sufficient for the duration of the run.
Other groups are welcome to join as I will post a GPX on here close to the date, but they should have somebody who is able to lead a group, particularly if the weather is bad on the hill tops. Contact me if you want to come, but are unsure.
