This very popular 20 mile road run covers the picturesque rural villages around the urban town of Cleckheaton on a two lap loop, starting and finishing at the Princess Mary Stadium. It can be a tough challenge for some, as it does incorporate a number of steep hills; some runners do use the race as a good test towards their next marathon, which could well be the London Marathon.
The race starts at 10:00am and the Marshalls will be out on the course until the last runner is home, which is expected to be by 2:00pm. Do consider your entry carefully if you feel you cannot complete the course within 4 hours.
The entry form is available here, or you can enter online at BookitZone.com. There is a limit of 400 runners, so do look to get your entry in early.
