Yorkshireman off road marathon 10th Sept 2017

The annual running of this race once again set off from Haworth on dry Sunday morning, with the option of the full marathon distance or the shorter half(???) 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 full kit required to be carried runners need to be ready for anything thing.

5 QRCers took part this year with arguably Carl Heron having the performance of the day finishing the full 26 miles in 10th place overall.
