The best ideas are always the most simple! Start at the bottom of the hill and run to the top, then if thats not enough run back down. 400m up then down. In God's own county, this will be a race you won't forget. And with 4 different distances there's a route for all.
The Apperley Bridge Canter (more colloquially known as the ABC) is a challenging race of approximately 10km, largely off-road along woodland tracks in a rural part of the Aire Valley. It attracts runners from clubs across Yorkshire, as well as increasing numbers of unattached runners. The race is organised annually by Horsforth Harriers from its established base at Woodhouse Grove School, Apperley Bridge.
As the name suggests this is an out and back canter on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The route will start and finish at Kirkstall about 2.5 miles outside the centre of Leeds. Whilst this flat route is not particularly technical its a great opportunity to improve your own PB.
My 4th event with these guys and first ever 20 miler. I was a bit nervous attempting such a distance for the first time but the track was nice and flat the entire way and their was the normal water stations every few miles with great and supportive Marshalls.as with every igunr there was lots of cake at the end and I even got a trophy for 2nd fastest male.looking forward to my 5th run with these guys next month!

This race is suitable for all abilities. This is thousands of women uniting with one purpose. Walk, jog or run. Raise valuable funds for research.
The course starts and finishes in front of Temle Newsam house. It is a beautiful one lap course snaking its way around the estate. It is a mix of tarmac pathways, gravel trails and some sections of cut grass to run on. There are 1-2 hills but nothing too arduous, all runnable for a first time 5k
There are plenty of areas at the start and finish in front of the house and on the course from which to spectate, these will be obvious to find on event day.
The Race for Life is anything but a race. Its your time to get together with friends and family and show cancer it wont win. Its not about being the fittest or the fastest, its about crossing the finish line any way you want.
The Fountains 10K is a great event for runners of all abilities with a mixed terrain route starting from the village of Grantley, near Ripon, North Yorkshire. It's an undulating route that takes in quiet country roads, off-road trails and scenic moorland within Nidderdale. Please note that part of the course may be waterlogged! Despite that we would expect all runners to finish within 90 minutes.
First time 10k Fountains run for me. Parking near the village was easy, well directed and free. Short walk to the village hall to collect the number and timing chip. Small queues for the toilets available in the hall and the school next door. Food and drinks available for spectators along with music at the finish. Comprehensive instructions at the start of the race followed at brass band intro. First half of the run was off road and enjoyable mostly steady uphill, the puddle was doable although I heard in past years had been the size of a lake and knee deep. Marshall’s were enthusiastic and encouraging. After the marsh land the second half was flat road and a chance to make up some time before the well manned water station. The hill of pain was just before the small final lap round the field at the school and again was again doable and a short one. The finish was well organised and welcoming. Great food content in the goodie bag, not sure about the truckers cap its quite unwearable and medal was only a token one, but bag for life ok and the scenery and organisation was brill, for me a good run that I would consider doing next year.
I finally got chance to enter the Askern 10k, only to find out that it was to be the last time the race is ran, due to (I believe) houses being built on or around the route! Booooo!The race itself took place on a very rainy Wednesday night. Registration was quick and painless, with my number being picked up within a couple of minutes. Registration took place in the local miners welfare club, so there was a nice big room available with toilets and plenty of space to hang around to see if the rain stopped.I didn't hear a race briefing, but I'm sure one took place! The start was uneventful and easy, and off we went.The route was flat for the first 3 miles, which aided the super quick runners who were out of sight almost immediately. The route took us around local villages, and there were plenty of marshalls around stopping cars and keeping an eye on the runners. There was a water station at the 5k mark which, although it was raining, was very welcome on a muggy night! The next mile took in a steady, cheeky uphill which brought some of the runners back together as we all plodded up it. This was followed by a long period of fast, downhill running before the course flattened out for the last mile. A t-shirt and a cup of squash were waiting for the runners at the end, and at this point the rain had finally stopped!A great race with definite PB potential - I finally broke my 10k PB at this race so I'll remember it forever. It would be a shame if we lost this local race forever, hopefully someone will pick it back up in the future with an alternative route / headquarters.
Lindley 10K starts in the center of Lindley village near Huddersfield. The race starts and finishes on Lidget Street near Lindley library. The course is certified as an accurate distance. The route rises from 218 meters at the start to 286 meters at 3k, then 142 meters at 8k then back to 218 meters at the finish.
The race sets off from Lindley a village in Huddersfield. Parking was easy probably about 5 minutes from the start. On the roadside, in fact we virtually ran past it during the race. There are 5 or 6 portaloos in the car park & more at the registration point.The race starts off on Lindley high Street which is called Lidget street this is also the finish line & where all the support is. Registration is in a pub on Lidget Street & is straightforward. After leaving Lidget street the race goes into a climb, then a 6k downhill, with a 2k uphill finish so definitely isn't a PB course. There is a water station at 5k. With more water & bananas at the finish. All finishers receive a technical t-shirt & medal which is fairly reasonably for the £16 entry price. I would do it again as it's reasonably priced & local but to be honest there are more interesting routes but as I said for the price it's fair enough.
The best ideas are always the most simple! Start at the bottom of the hill and ride or run to the top. About 3 miles, or 5 kilometres lets just call it a long climb. The route follows the Kirklees Way, onto the Pennine Way, out onto the road at the top. First Wednesday of every month.

For over 30 years runners have taken part in the Melmerby 10K many achieving a Personal Best or Season Best time. Starting in the village of Melmerby the undulating route takes you through the quite and scenic rural surrounding of the picturesque villages finishing back in Melmerby. A fast course it may be but it has been enjoyed over the years by runners of all abilities This course is for everyone you will not be disappointed. We pride ourselves in giving you a friendly welcome and our marshals and villagers will give you friendly encouragement along the rout
First time I’ve taken part in this race.It was really hot morning, it’s certainly not a flat route, there were a few hills/ steep inclines in places, along the country roads.The Marshall’s did a great job, and their support was brilliant along the route, along with the local residents.The only downside for this race, is it could do to start earlier than 11.30am.I would recommend this race, and will be back next year as I did enjoy running along the country roads.
The York & District Road Race League is a league formed by local running races to lay on six 10K road races and one reverse handicap in and around the York area.
In exceptional circumstances guests may take part with the formal permission of the League committee and the committee will decide whether any guest will be included in the results.
Entries will only be accepted from fully paid up members of YDRRL clubs who are holders of an England Athletics Licence. Please ensure you have your England Athletics Registration number before entering.

The new KotH 10K, this is just as simple, run up the hill, run down the hill, so choose to run or ride the 5k or run 10k.
The Wetherby Run 10k has a relatively short history but it has become a firm favourite with runners from around the region and beyond. The date of the race suits those training for The Yorkshire Marathon in October or with the Great North Run in mind, as it offers a fast course on minor roads and well-surfaced tracks, mainly rural and scenic. Wetherby Racecourse. Also 5k option.
Beeston is first mentioned in the Domesday Book as Bestone, which comes from the Old English, Bent Grass. In the medieval period Beeston was associated with sheep farming and the monks of Kirkstall Abbey grazed 240 sheep there. Beeston is of course home to Elland Road and was formley the home of the Waddington family, the board and card manufacturer monopoly.
Don't go ta jail. Go directly ta Beeston. Pass finish an' collect tha' medal.
The first mention of Bramley comes in the Domesday Book compiled for William the Conqueror in 1086. The Bram part of the name occurs in several other Yorkshire village names such as Bramhope and Bramham. In Old English (the language of the Anglo-Saxons) it signifies the broom plant. Ley means a clearing. It would seem therefore that Bramley started out life as 'a clearing covered with broom'. In recent years the town has been referred to as the village that disappeared, the demolition of many historic buildings left many of the local residents unhappy, with a feeling of disappointment that the true character of the town had been lost forever. Despite the change in the buildings and appearance of the town what has remained is the true gritty character of genuine Yorkshire folk and the friendly feeling. Thas run thee 10K a Sit thissen Dahn
I was the Tail runner for this event and thoroughly enjoyed it. Registration was easy and very organized, instructions were easy to understand . A good route out of Bramley park and back round twice to make it 10k. Water station and great support at the 5k water station. All Marshall’s were very encouraging and so were random people doing about their business, one lady stood outside swimming baths shouting encouragement to everyone. All runners who lapped is were very friendly and supportive. Home made cake as always at the end and fab medal and full chocolate orange and beer in goody bag. 👍👍👍👍
I marshalled this race. The organisation and other marshals was really good (as ever) the course was easy to follow with loads of marshals to guide the way. The runners got a great medal, beer and chocolate as well as a huge pile of free cake.
I love the atmosphere of grim up north events, always fun and friendly.
Arguably the most beautiful city in the UK! A rare chance to run through the ancient city walls and marvel at its medieval gems. When it comes to stunning scenery, the York 10K is hard to beat! Extremely popular, the flat route takes runners right through the historic heart of this beautiful city.
A flat, fast course taking runners on a tour past the York Minster, the city walls and attractions such as Clifford's Tower and the Shambles. Starting and finishing at the Knavesmire, the York 10K is a fantastic challenge for all abilities.
Another great 10k from the Run for All team. Great course, especially the parts through the city centre and along the river. Plenty of support and a great event village. Park and Ride scheme was great except the buses needed to be more frequent as people ended up late for the start.
Run for all York 10k. Third time I’ve done the event - it’s very decent. Car parking is a bit of a pain with the location and large numbers of competitors but arriving early-ish we got parked on the race course - which was fine. The route takes you through much of the best York has - which is great. Bit congested but not enough to be awkward really. Fewer instances of people starting too far forward then previous years. Good crowds - nice goody bag, medal and a decent t shirt. Exiting the car park was poor with no marshalls and cars going two ways along a one way route as a result - needs improving.
Join thousands of runners in the long-standing Age UK Leeds Abbey Dash. An excellent race for runners of all levels to enjoy the atmosphere and wind their way through the closed off streets of Leeds. Come if you want a shot at a 10k PB and to raise money for a great cause.
Doncaster AC present Doncasters classic race of the year, a fast three lap course around the town centre for 5K runners and one lap for fun runners. Large home crowds line the route which is well marshalled with authorised road closures and police support.
Welcome to the Mossley 10K - Hosted by semi-professional football club, Mossley AFC, it is hoped to attract a good mix of club-class competitors, social runners, beginners and charity fundraisers.
No matter what your running experience may be, the Mossley 10K is the race for you! Ideal for both experienced club runners, social runners and those perhaps looking for a (first) 'proper' race to enter. If you are seeking to raise funds for a charity by completing a challenging event, this race definitely provides the opportunity.
The race routes are designed to be challenging yet scenic. The half marathon has over 2,000ft of ascent and the 10k over 800ft! Bespoke medal for all finishers. Prizes for 1st - 3rd male & female, and vet categories. The village of Barley is a great base for families with a playground, a sculpture trail and a selection of cafes/pubs.
Home cooked food, bag storage, toilets and changing facilities are provided locally. All runners must register and collect their numbers before their race at Event HQ at Barley Village Hall. Prices increase on July 1st. Entry on Day available (if limits arent reached) at increased price level.

Littleborough is a place made for running and many do not realize some of the great runs that can be had around it. With this in mind, I have designed a fast and picturesque course that is run on good runnable roads, paths and some country lanes. The course, after the first start section, is on a small gradual decline in terms of elevation (see elevation chart). This makes the race feel downhill and makes for a really enjoyable running experience.
From past experience, Cannonball Events races have always been well organised, and this one was no exception. Online race entry was quick and easy, picking up the race number on the day was no issue either. The race is chip timed, with each entrant wearing a chipped ankle tag, so race times are accurate. The course itself starts near Littleborough railway station, has a short climb up to Hollingworth Lake where runners complete 2 laps of the Lake, before descending back down for a fast sprint finish. The laps around the lake are lovely, and make a nice change to the usual road races! Marshals did a great job, especially as the race isn't run on closed roads. One thing I was really impressed with was how quickly the results were available after the race. As soon as I got back to race HQ (a few minutes walk from the start/finish), my result was available to view on one of several iPads laid out. Because the results were available so quickly, the presentation was also done without having to wait for ages for results to be collated, etc. Prize structure was excellent too, with awards for the first 5 males/females (rather than the usual top 3), age category prizes and team prizes. In summary, this was a great local race, brilliantly organised by Cannonball, and one I will look forward to doing again in future.
Well... Where to start! The Run Bolton Abbey event was new to the racing calendar. It was held on the Bolton Abbey Estate in the Yorkshire Dales, and for those that have been there, will know that it is a stunning location. The registration process was nice and easy along with pre race information that was sent out. So, I woke up on the Sunday and opened the curtains - the sky was blue as far as you could see and the sun was shining, however, it was bitterly cold!!! I arrived at Bolton Abbey nice and early, collected my race number, and then went back to the car to warm up! Closer to the start time, I took in the atmosphere as they had a DJ playing in the back of converted Land Rover which was pretty unique. Unfortunately, the start was delayed by 15 minutes due to cars not being able to get into the estate. The entrance is a single track lane so people would need to give themselves plenty of time. Speaking of which, entry to the Bolton Abbey Estate coats £10 per car, but runners were allowed to park for a reduced rate of £7.50. Personally, I would have thought that runners could either paid as little as £5 or even got in for free. I can gurantee that the Estate doesn't have that many people there at 09:30 on a Sunday morning so they will have made a pretty penny from the event...! (Maybe thats just the Yorkshireman in me).Due to it being on Remembrance Sunday, the start time was due to be 11:02. Every single person there observed the Last Post and minutes' silence impeccably.The race itself! I have been running for 2.5 years now, and this is right up there as one of the most scenic runs I have done. (The North Yorks Moors, Sherwood Forest and Kielder Water come close). The 10k runners gathered on the start line and they were off - right across a narrow bridge which meant you had to walk about 200 yards after starting. Up you went into the woods where it opened out a little - until you hit another bridge!! The first mile took 18 minutes to complete. I knew this as I had the chance to talk to fellow runners and take some pictures as we were just stood... Finally, we were moving again. When you managed to get a pace, the scenery was beautiful. Runners were laughing and joking with each other and the race had a good feel about it. We then started to head downhill off the moors towards the Estate again where we were met with a style over a wall..... And about 50 runners waiting to cross. Some took matters into their own hands and just jumped over the wall, ran down the hill, then crossed over a gate back into the correct field. At last, some flat to run on. Along the river and through a couple of fields, we were back into the woods on the flat heading to the finish line. The support at the start and finish was fantastic, along with a great medal too. There are lessons to be learnt from this event, and this has already been taken on board by the organisers as they have emailed all participants this week apologising for what went wrong. 1) They understood they should maybe have started the race in waves.2) They apologised as the lead runners did an extra 1k due to a farmer closing and locking a gate that was open for the race.3) They admitted they wrongly assumed that runners would be well spread out by the time they reached the styles.The email went on to say that the organisers "apologise and can assure runners that lessons have been learnt". On final point to add.... It was advertised as a Trail race, but I'm pretty sure it was a Fell race, and I'm not the only one to comment on this. If you do decide to enter next year - it is tough!!! But worth it..
Choose from 10k or 13.1 mile routes at Harewood House in February 2019 and join us in beating heartbreak forever.
This tough challenge will take you across muddy tracks, grass trails and steep forest trails. This run will test even the most seasoned runner, but you'll feel like a champion when you cross the finish line.
The race is a fabulous run around parts of the harewood estate rarely seen by visitors. The off road half marathon is a good test of stamina and endurance covering forest paths, fields, meadows and steep hills. The information leading up to the race was excellent and organisation on the day was smooth including the car parking, and bag storage. It was a glorious day which led to spectacular views of the house, lake, deer park and even the outside set of Emmerdale! The course was a little shorter than the half marathon which is frustrating when you are trying to pace yourself using your watch. The Volunteers, Marshals, Scouts and Junior Soldiers were excellent. The race doesn't appear on Power of 10 but it is all for good cause and I would highly recommend it!
Really enjoyed the trails but not the crossing the tufted grassy hills. Route marking could be improved and mile markers were inaccurate. Marshals could be encouraged be be more enthusiastically involved and generally low key atmosphere.
Our Asda Foundation Burnley 10K is one of the region's best-loved events, attracting around 2,000 runners each summer.Small in size, but not in spirit, what feels like the whole town turns out to support runners in this fantastic 10K challenge. Now in its sixth year, the race begins and finishes in Towneley Park, outside the majestic Towneley Hall, the jewel in Burnleys crown.
I run quite a few 10ks during the year, and Burnley is up there among the favourites.It's one of the smaller, more 'intimate' events in the Asda Run for All series.It starts and finishes in the beautiful setting of Townley Park.Organisers 'warn' that the route includes a small element of multi-terrain, but if like me your preference is road running, don't be put off by that. Even when you're briefly on paths, they're of a good standard.There's a terrific, friendly atmosphere; it's well organised; the volunteer marshalls are helpful and you get a great goody bag, including medal and shirt!Have already signed-up for next year!
