Yorkshire Off Road full + Half Marathon 8th Sept 2019

The annual running of this race once again set off from Haworth on a dry Sunday morning, with the option of the full marathon distance or the shorter half(14.7mile) entrants had plenty to aim for.

The route has plenty to offer everyone but this race is not for the faint hearted, taking in tarmac, grass, moorland and gravel tracks the route passes through many local villages and moorland including Haworth Moor, Ovenden Moor, Denholme, Cullingworth and Harden Moor to name but a few. 

With checkpoints throughout the route and with kit required to be carried runners needed to be ready for anything thing.

So if you like off road running give this race a go next year, I don’t want to put anybody off, but this was the most challenging race I have ever done. All our runners ran well (6 of them anyway), all with some fab times.
