Holmfirth Harriers Athletic Club is proud to present the Holmfirth 15 and the Holmfirth 10Km.

2018 will recognize the 50th anniversary since the 15-mile race was first staged, so whether it is your first attempt at the distance, or you have run before, why not join us to celebrate this achievement.

It is interesting that the very first "The Suncharm 15" race promotion also included the inaugural Holmfirth open junior road races that were then moved to another date the following year.

The Northern Jumble- A great opportunity to build up the bling and take one of the bespoke medals designed for Its Grim Up North Running all for the bargain price of 10.

The lovely village of Slaithwaite provides the perfect setting for another out and back along the canal. The lovely mill town captures the North in every sense, friendly folk, beautiful hillsides and plenty of tea shops, what more could anyone ask for.

"Slaithwaite (pronounced 'slawit' or 'Slaithwaite' by locals) is a true "Yorkshire grit" mill town straddled by the viaduct and bisected by the canal. Slaithwaite retains its essential character, despite being used as the setting for the television series, "Where the Heart is" and for some of "Last of the Summer Wine". A lovely church, the fine 17th Century Dartmouth Estate Manor House, and other buildings dating from the 18th Century combine with large central mills to give quality to this industrial village that was once home to Luddites".
