Haworth Hobble – 13/03/16

Now, on to possibly the least know race of the weekend, The Haworth Hobble.

For those that are not aware, this is an Ultramarathon (any race over the marathon distance of 26.2mi). It’s a 32mi race over Yorkshire Pennine paths and tracks from Haworth over the moors to Calderdale, up Stoodley Pike and back to Haworth via Heptonstall and Crimsworth Dean. As you can imagine this is far from flat, in fact it ascends a colossal 4400ft.

So, a massive well done to Carl Heron who ranĀ this monster in an impressive 05:43:49 and finished 67th out of a field of 310.

Excellent effort.
