A local classic and an excellent long route to start the season. Plenty of varied terrain. And perhaps a bit of mud! Race route only partially marked. A 31km fell race with 1110m climb, starting from the Old Town Cricket Club, Hebden Bridge. Minimum age 18 years.

If you are doing any running over the route please be aware that there are shoots on a Saturday and it would be advisable if you could run the route on a Sunday. Many Thanks.

    Fantastic race, really enjoyed it, despite losing my bearings between CP11 and 12! Tough conditions, which I strangely tend to enjoy more, marshalls were great, please don't change this route! Only tiny criticism would be to make the dabbing stations a bit more easy to identify as I ran past a couple without noticing them and had to return to them to scan in. Keep up the good work and thanks for putting on this great event.

    A very tough course made worse by the weather conditions. A killer finish too. Makes it a character building run.
  • Did the 31km in 2018

    The course was brilliantly flagged and marshalled. Tough day for me due to fitness but a good challenge to have completed
  • Did the 31km in 2018

    Really enjoyed the course, great atmosphere and well organised race. Looking forward to doing it again The only improvement I could suggest would be to have the last 5 miles better flagged. I know quite a few people accidentally went of course in the last bit.

    Really enjoyed the race - could have been more markers at the end from the moor last checkpoint until the finish (road and side street section before the finish) but then again people should recce the race

    1st time and it was a good race weather added to it haha.Course was good and testing due to ground conditions undefoot.I personally felt that the finish was a bit of an anti climax though I'm happy to have an uphill finish but the dreary trudge up 3 fields felt like I was herding the animals home rather than reaching the climax of a good fell race this is where I feel full tour of pendle beats it I'm afraid.Race marshals support 10 out of 10Race organisation 10 out of 10Race route 8 out of 10 ( simply for the finish).

    First timer. Really enjoyed this run through peat. Very little road which was good. The route was well marked, just struggled with navigation a bit near the end. Lucky enough to be running in snow which added to the events. Now I know the route well be back.

    Excellent race, well organised.

    This was the 4th year Ive done The Wadsworth Trog and this is the first time Ive seen the course flagged so much. I was counting on course knowledge and nav to play a big part of the race for which I was prepared but the flagging removed my (possible) advantage and made it a more straight forward running race. I was a little disappointed by that.Overall still a great race and a tough one in Winter conditions.
