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. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal is 127.25 miles in length, stretching between the busy cities of Leeds and Liverpool. It is in fact the longest canal in the north of England and passing through 91 locks. The construction began in 1770 and was completed in 1816.

Racing across mountains, hills, fells and trails in Ultra-marathon distances is great for the soul, much like in our Calderdale Way Ultra. However, the opportunity to record fast, flat miles over Ultra distances is not often achievable. For this reason, we created The Canalathon.
This event comprises of 3 races-
1. 50km: A 31-mile Ultra-marathon across the famous Route 66 Rochdale Canal,
2. 75km: A 46-mile Ultra-marathon that is an out and back route from Sowerby to Oldham and back to Sowerby.
3. 100km: A 62-mile Ultra-marathon beginning in Sowerby Bridge, follows the route all the way until Manchester, turns and follows the same route back, ending where you started in Sowerby Bridge.
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.
