The Haworth Hobble has been a regular Runfurther event for a long time: it attracts more Runfurther runners than any other event.  Its 32 miles follow Yorkshire Pennine paths and tracks from Haworth over the moors to Calderdale, up Stoodley Pike and back to Haworth via Heptonstall and Crimsworth Dean.  The views are great, and it’s nearly all runnable apart from the climb up the Pike, provided you’ve got enough left in the tank!  This race sorts out who’s taken it easy over the winter with a vengeance.  Better get training then…
