Why Brighouse and what is the festival about?

We (with the support of local businesses and Calderdale Council) have come up with, (what most people would think was impossible), fast, flat, closed road courses in the centre of Brighouse.  It’s going to be a great opportunity to get that sought-after PB or season’s best without travelling further afield.

The course is one of the flattest in the UK and Ireland (see comparison chart for further details). It’s a fast, straight course with only 1 small undulation each lap (3 laps repeated course).

This year we plan to add several market stalls and some entertainment. If you would like to have a stall at the event please contact us on john[at]cannonballevents.co.uk.

Route Description

Fun Run – 1k lap straight out and back course.
It’s a perfect introduction to allow younger runners or people new to running to have some fun, run with their peers or family and (if they so want) race against the clock.

5k – out and back 3 lap course.
The new fast and flat 5k race.

1k – straight out and back course.
It’s a perfect introduction to allow younger runners or people new to running to have some fun, run with their peers or family and (if they so want) race against the clock.

RouteCertificate

2k – 2 x 1k lap out and back course.
Want to push yourself that bit further? Maybe your used to 1500m on the track or can remember that from your school days? Think 1500 with an extended finish !! the next step. This is a unique opportunity to run a measured race at this distance.

RouteCertificate

4K – out and back 3 lap course.
The 4k is a perfect training tool for those looking eventually to step up to a timed 5k race. There are very few (if any) timed road 4k races in the UK, so once again it offers a unique experience and opportunities to run a set distance against the clock.

RouteCertificate

In all the above races:
Each turn point will be clearly marked and marshalled.
Chip timed and all runners will have their times recorded using our live timing.
Each runner will receive a prize and an additional prize will be awarded at the finish line to the first male and female.

10k
3 laps of this fast course with only 14.3 metres climb per lap (43 metres in total). Each lap will be given its own split time using our live chip timing technology. Starting and finishing in the parking area of Sainsbury’s and travelling straight down Mill road and eventually onto Armytage Road.   When you reach Clipper Logistics and the road end, you return on the other side of the road back to the start for each lap.
