The Stunning Calderdale Way

Famed for its iconic landmarks, immense scenery and runnable hills, the trails and fells of the Calderdale Way are a favourite among runners and walkers from the North of England. It offers stunning views and takes on the best parts of the Pennine Way.

You may have experienced parts of the course in The Calderdale Way Relays, or perhaps it’s part of your favourite training runs – up to Stoodley Pike for example.

Be one of the few runners to complete the full Calderdale Way route in one go in our 50.5-mile Ultra-marathon

With our new extended time cut-offs, we have now made the event fully accessible to all abilities of ultra runners (regardless of experience) and experienced walkers can also take up the challenge.

Our timing chart shows you what times are allowed to meet the event cut-offs.
