A fast fun packed forest trail run with some challenging uphills and rewarding downhills!Starting in Meanwood, the Holly Hustle takes in some of the best trails that Leeds has to offer. A combination of beautiful Meanwood Park and the Hollies, famous for well-kept paths through extensive woodlands, with a vast collection of different species of flowers. Then onto the marvellous Meanwood Valley Trail, past the Seven Arches viaduct and Adel Crag. With the option of a quarter or two-lap half Marathon and free hot soup and crusty bread at the end there’s possibly no reason why this shouldn’t be on every fun-loving trail runners bucket list!

Good hard track. Enjoyed the terrain. No information on times of finish as yet. Emails before with info were great and I was kept well informed

Not a problem personally as I could follow those ahead, but I believe the leaders in my race got lost on the course, so further marking and marshaling could be considered for next year (which I am certainly hoping to partake in)

Great race but need better markers - easy to get lost. And still haven't got our times! Loved the course and soup and roll at the end. Medal would be nice!

A great race - challenging but runnable course with a nice sting in the tail! Really grateful to the marshals standing in the cold and the soup was a great reward at the end!

This event was great, but the route was poorly marked in some places, there should have been more marshals. When me and my friend attended to a injured runner the nearby marshal had no first aid kit or space blanket and we relied on a passing walker who was a first responder. With a route of this kind, which was very muddy and therefore slippery, there should be first aid kits available and a clear plan for when someone is injured. Having said that, I’ll definitely be back next year

Fantastic race, good value.The course markers weren’t very big tho so you do need to take care where you’re going.

Good course.Too few marshals and poor route marking. Route markers were very hard to see against autumn leaves, little bits of tape on the end of bbq skewers.
