I am leading a short-notice (not in Strider) flood relief fundraiser walk with Calderdale Group on Sunday March 6th. It's 18 miles and starts from Sowerby Bridge train station at 9am. Details on the Calderdale Group page of the LDWA website.

The route includes Mytholmroyd, where there is still much evidence of the damage to homes and businesses.

I agree wholeheartedly with those comments, Carmel. They always do us proud on The Hebden and the late-notice enforced change of venue did nothing to dampen it. (I did feel sorry for the residents and property owners after the floods, though.)

Many thanks Carole and Alan on re-organising "The Hebden" start location and getting all the info out in the public domain in such a short time-frame. Tough challenging route enough without the icy condition. Checkpoints lavished with scrumptious goodies as always. The banquet at checkpoint three is just delicious. Excellent event as always. Thank you both for your commitment in ensuring the event went ahead due to the recent flooding in Hebden Bridge.
