A very much back to basics ultra marathon, a non-stop, self sufficient, 73 miles with over 4000ft of accent. The anti clockwise route visits the Upper Colne, Spen and Holme Valleys and passes Dewsbury, Holmfirth and Marsden. Highlights along the route include a series of picturesque reservoirs including Holme Styes, Ramsden, Digley and Bilberry. Most of the route is way marked but you will require basic navigation skills (some of this you will be doing at night). Cut off time (21 hours) will be in force.
