Event Details Updated
Extended Route - The Marsden Moors now incorporates the Marsden Moors Marathon. We now have a full Marthon route. All checkpoints would remain the same but the cutoff for the Marathon is 2pm at Brun Clogh CP, giving participants 3hrs to complete 8miles. An additional 3 miles will be added from the top of the descent to the footbridge over Blakely Clogh. From here a path is followed to a ford and then down to Wessenden Reservoir embankment. Then Wessenden Lodge to climb to Hey Brinks. Follow Deer Hill Conduit to a path that descends via Round Hill to the B6107, Methan Road. Then the Colne Valley Circuit and path to A62. Field path from Olive Branch restaurant to the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and then tow path back to start. A full route description will be produced in the near future.
