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.

Competing as either solo, pairs, or teams of 4 (new feature !!) pairs or teams of 4 can be made up of any gender combination and multiple clubs. the race is great for charity challenges or to complete something out of the ordinary with club/team mates.

The 50.5 mile option also carries 4 points towards the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc®. 

The 28.5 mile option is a great introduction for runners looking to make the step-up into running and competing in Ultra-marathons.  For those familiar with the Calderdale Way Relay, its basically legs 6,1 & 2 combined. Why not use your knowledge of the legs to compete in an Ultra Marathon? 

The 28.5 mile option also carries 2 points towards the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc®.


New for 2017: Guides!

We are aware that not all runners can get to Yorkshire to recce the route and some newer runners may struggle with map reading. With this in mind we will introduce a guide runner in the 2017 event. The guide will navigate the course just ahead of the cut off times. New runners can rely on the experienced guide runner to pace make for them and keep them from taking a wrong turn. Runners can concentrate on running, taking in the incredible views and enjoying the event
