The annual Bluebell hosted by Stainland, enjoyed by many with it’s infamous Trooper Lane climb at 4 miles, then once Trooper has zapped your energy every other hill no matter how small seems to feel just as tough.
At the 3/4 point of Trooper there was a chance for our runners to get some support from the QRC fanzone with a much needed water station at the top, before the steady ascent up to Beacon Hill over looking Halifax. From here it’s around the moors up and down before exiting at Southawram Cricket Club and heading back through the bluebell laden woods into Elland, along the canal bank and taking a refreshing dip in the river, up the banking and back into Heath Rugby Club where the finishing line awaits.
