The Denholme Doddle is a challenge walk and trail running event that revives the Harden Hard’un. It follows almost the same 27 mile route but starts and finishes in the village of Denholme three miles from Harden and seven miles west of Bradford. Half of the route is on open moorland with outstanding views. It passes Top Withins (Wuthering Heights) and other well known beauty spots in the Bronte Country.
All proceeds from the event go directly to Mpika Village of Hope, a registered charity which cares for orphaned children in Zambia.
Distances are 27 miles, 21 miles or 17 miles. The time limit for all distances is 11.5 hours.
There are six checkpoints with good refreshments spaced throughout the route.
Big shout out to Carl Heron on his joint 1st place, after running most of the race with a runner from Northampton they decided to cross the line together.
Carl Heron 4hrs 42min for 27 miles
Andy Smith 4hrs 49 for the 17 mile route
Vicki Bean 5hrs 03 for the 17 mile route
Matt Fielding (walker) 6hrs 24 for the 21 mile route.
Awesome stuff you all of you.
