Route information
The 50-mile route starts and finishes in Heptonstall traveling over open moorland and woodland trails, taking in some of the more scenic views from above Todmorden and Old Town as well as the lesser popular canal sections and the odd road crossing.
Be sure to make use of the 6 aid stations, particularly the 5th one in Todmorden situated between two climbs.
You have 17 hours to get back to Heptonstall for a jacket potato & vegetarian chili!
The 30-mile route starts at Brookfoot lock brighouse and finishes in Heptonstall, with a 10-hour cut-off.... this means you still get the killer climb out of Todmorden... but once you get to the top it's all flat to the end.
