      Hilly with views to match
      Registration was super fast.
      Race briefing was fine.
      Route was well marked. Scenery was brilliant.
      2018 was dry but very windy - very glad of the mandatory kit to be honest.
      Mixed terrain so need to select shoes for that.
      Challenging and rewarding course.
      Marshalls were excellent.
      T-shirt, medal and a bowl of chilli at the finish.
      I’d recommend this race.

      now this is not a race for the faint hearted. running snowdonia Marathon the weekend before probably wasnt the best prep (hence the DNF).Registration was really straight forwards and the morning breifing covered everything that you neede to know.this is a tough ol course but the climbs are worth every step. mixed terrian with some road running so please wear suitable clothing so that you are visable to drivers. from the 13 miles or so of the course that i saw, you will love this race.
    • Did the event in 2017

      The parking area looked massive on the map but soon runs out so get there early or be prepared for a mad dash round the local streets for a spot! 10 minutes walk to the start is easy and signposted, registration straight forward. Good to have use of the visitor centre for toilets and warmth but gets very overcrowded. I remember the start being a couple of miles of slow incline with decent scenery , nothing too tough. Much of the course is tarmac lanes, farm track and grassy track which I thought was a great mix. Only a few aid stations and basic, I would recommend being self sufficient. The hills are all bearable nothing too bad, but the very last one within a mile of the finish is a proper bastard when you’re dead on your feet. About a 20% gradient for about 500m roughly. Thankfully once over the top you can spring down to the finish. Shame the medal is generic, but you get a base tech shirt thrown in too

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Hell of a Hill Marathon is arguably the toughest 26.2 miles in the UK, and the toughest 5 consecutive marathons in 5 days in the World - only the toughest dare to challenge the Hill for 5 consecutive days! The mighty Rivington Pike stands 1,191ft tall on the West Pennine Moors, and runners have to pass over the summit a massive 40 times to complete the challenge of a lifetime. A total of 30,000ft of elevation gain (Mount Everest!) and 131 miles of tough stone and mud trail running in the cold Winter months!.

      Bloody amazing day out with Shell! If you’ve not attempted this gigantic lump of a race then you’re needing to reset you’re priorities.

      It’s tough, lumpy (6 times lumpy) with amazing views (past the mist) and cracking camaraderie!

      Get it booked. In fact get the whole 5 days in the calender.

    • Did the event in 2018

      It's a tough, challenging marathon. Very technical terrain - choose your footwear carefully. I went with massive cushioning for the rocky downhills 'cause I love those and needed to take advantage of them. Anything minimal will leave you tip-toeing those sections but maybe more sprightly up the climbs. It's a half mile long. Aim to run steady, even laps and save enough for the 3.5 road/trail leg back to HQ if you're running throughout the week - completing the 5 laps can feel like "I'm done" - but the run back can feel a very long way.
    • Did the event in 2017

      I entered this event after completing the Bolton Hill Marathon. Despite an injury I still took part with some thanks to a generous cut off time.It's one marathon a day across 5 days. Complete one, two or all five! The event had a new HQ with loos, changing facilities etc. A canteen with hot drinks and food and free parking. The route was well marked and easy to follow. There were a few marshalls but the main crew was at the feed station at the start of tbe lap. No navigation was imo needed. It was a tough course which got tougher each lap!There was bling with the option to buy a tee. Unfortunately no race photography on the first days of event.A great event that you feel you've accomplished something at the end and you could collect all five medals which join to make one.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Famed for its iconic landmarks, immense scenery and runnable hills, the trails and fells of the Calderdale Way is a favourite among runners and walkers from the North of England. It offers stunning views and takes on the best parts of the Pennine Way.

    You may have experienced parts of the course in The Calderdale Way Relays, or perhaps it's part of your favourite training runs - up to Stoodley Pike for example. Be one of the few runners to complete the full Calderdale Way route in one go in our 50.5 mile Ultra-marathon.

    Competing as either solo, pairs, or teams of 4 (new feature !!) pairs or teams of 4 can be made up of any gender combination and multiple clubs. the race is great for charity challenges or to complete something out of the ordinary with club/team mates.

    The 50.5 mile option also carries 4 points towards the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc.

    The 28.5 mile option is a great introduction for runners looking to make the step-up into running and competing in Ultra-marathons. For those familiar with the Calderdale Way Relay, its basically legs 6,1 & 2 combined. Why not use your knowledge of the legs to compete in an Ultra Marathon?

    The 28.5 mile option also carries 2 points towards the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc.

      Well this is not for the faint hearted. It’s a very lumpy either 28 or 50 mile route. It is well marked with the usually little way arrows which can be missed if you are not paying attention. The route is a real mix of tarmac track and moorland with absolutely amazing views. The aid stations are nicely positioned and the volunteers were very chirpy and helpful.  Well stocked with the usual sweet and salty treats with a small selection for the ever growing Vegan running community. I’m not going to give you a turn by turn account but please note that it is tough but so worth doing. If you have any questions then you can get me over on twitter @antruns. The only issue being that there were plastic cups at the aid stations. If the organisers put a cup on the kit list then they could do away with these. I know they don’t cost a lot in monitory value but the environmental impact is massive
    • Did the event in 2017

      Although there are no mountains to be seen anywhere, this is a very testing course with 7000ft of climbing over the 50 miles. Mostly all off road, some on hard packed trail but a lot of plain mud / grass.Organisation was brilliant as were the aid stations. Navigation was tricky at a few points, though the map and written directions were superb. They'd also put up a lot of event route markers. I ran with someone who had run it all before so it wasn't an issue. Spotted a few people getting lost though. Even though I DNF'd (caught by the sweeper after 38 miles) it was still a good day out. Might be back!

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Britain's biggest club run off road event is almost upon us once more, and this year it's a new and improved model. For the first time, we will have chip timing. We have a massively improved prize fund thanks to sportsshoes.com and Salomon and we have a new race finish. Instead of a last mile around the canal basin and along Stainland Road, we will be taking the lovely Hebble Trail up to Halifax Harriers HQ at Spring Hall....which has a bit of a sting in the tail.

      This was my first time running the Calderdale Way Relay, and in fact my first fell race. I was running leg two, and had recce'd it a few weeks earlier. We found the race instructions weren't completely clear, but as we started with the mass start on the day it wasn't a problem (we would have ended up in the right place anyway...might just have taken a detour!). The day itself was really well organised. Once we had parked up at the start of our leg, we had a quick kit check and picked up our race numbers without any issue. The pub at the start had kindly opened early and provided plenty of cold water (it was a hot day) and toilet facilities, which made for a nice start. The route itself is really tough work, but absolutely beautiful. The first mile of leg two is hard as it's all uphill, but once you're up next to Stoodley Pike, the views are stunning. The downhill is quite technical but enjoyable.We didn't actually realise we had finished at the end of our leg, as we didn't spot the volunteers taking down finishing times, so a sign or something would have helped. But all in all, a really great event. I'm sure I will be back (though I'm not sure my legs will thank me!).

    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.
