Many of us may have enjoyed a stroll around the scenic lake with a family or friend and enjoyed the flat surfaces, easy walking and views it offers. So when it came to hosting a 5k with a memorable route I looked no further than Hollingworth Lake. Runnable for all ability levels. Fast, flat, scenic and electronically timed 5k. UKA licence pending and Course Measurement distance certified race.

Littleborough, Greater Manchester, GB

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.

Huddersfield 5k Park Series are new weekly 5k races run in July at the stunning Greenhead Park. The popular weekend parkrun regularly has 600 plus runners, so its the perfect venue to organize an accurately measured, UKA licensed, live chip timed 5k event series. The park itself is very easy to get to via the M62, or by bus or rail from all areas of the North West.

The Route is different than the weekend parkrun and contains fewer bends, twist and turns and for this reason we feel that the times will be much faster.

The races can be entered individually or you can enter all 4 races in the series (via the Series entry option). If you miss the series entry, then simply enter 3 from 4 of the races to qualify for the league. There are various prize options for both places and improvers in the league and superb individual and team prizes each race.
