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 was 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 lose time routefinding when there is a new route, so plan ahead!
