Thu 30/05/19
That’s So Hebden Bridge (BM)
This is a tough but accessible first fell race, popular with our back to the fells runners and experienced runners alike. This race sets off our summer series with a 6.5mile, fully flagged, run to Stoodley Pike and back.
Tue 11/06/19
Bridestone (AS)
Fell race that goes past the famous Bridestone and takes in some of the lesser used paths in the upper Calder Valley. A short fast race with steep climbs, fast tracks and demon descents, something for everyone.
Wed 26/06/19
Cragg Vale (BS)
This event, put on by the residents of the village, is based from Cragg Vale Church.
Run over local terrain you will already know most of this route.  Beer and Butties are served up in the church afterwards.
Just don’t forgot your midge repellent for the finish line.
Tuesday night in July
Club Handicap – Date TBC 
This members only race sees you pitted against your own ability. With calculated start times the winner on the night will be whoever pulls enough extra out of the bag. However your elapsed time on the night will also go towards summer series points.
Bring some beer money for the pub after, where a great spread of sandwiches are laid on.
Wed 21/08/19
Golf Ball (BS)
Named after the Golf Ball weather radar, that may or may not be visible through the mist. This race has a mix of hard packed and boggy routes, and plenty of climbing for a short race, you will be glad to get back to The Glory pub afterwards.
Sat 31/08/19
Blackshaw Head Fete (BS)
All profits will be donated to local charities.
Entry on the day (£4) plus a donation to enter the fete field. No pre-entry. Entry limit 150.
