This classic Yorkshire Pennines trail event always attracts a lot of Runfurther runners.  It starts at Sowerby in the Calder Valley, taking a big loop around Calderdale, with a new route every three years.  2018 will be a new route including Ripponden, Lumbutts and Heptonstall and as always a lot of varied moorland and valley scenery.  The route is defined only by the checkpoints, and you must devise your own route between them.  Many runners lost time routefinding in 2015 when there was last a new route, so plan ahead!
