This new race is basically 2 loops of the Stairway to Heaven which is part of the South Huddersfield Trail Run Series.
Holme Valley Half is a challenging, hilly course with 1800ft of climbing, towards Ramsden reservoir and the forested paths around Hade Edge. Climb from the reservoirs of Holmbridge to Elysium farm and down to Holme Styes before climbing back up and home.
Storming round the course were 2 of our runners Tom and Stacey and with only 28 runners taking part the chances of good finishing positions were good and they didn’t disappoint.
2nd Tom 1:31:46
8th Stacey 1:56:56
Great racing from both on a tough hilly course.
