Route
The race starts on the bridge next to Burnley Road Primary School, just off the A646 Burnley Road in Mytholmroyd. (SE 011 262) The start is tough as it climbs up through the fields past Hill House Farm, reaching Heights Road (SE 011 271) then continues to climb up through the fields to Wicken Hill. (SE 013 272) The route eases slightly as you cross an open section of Midgley Moor going first to a wall corner (SE 014 275) before following the track to Churn Milk Joan (SE 020 276). You then cross rough moorland to reach the wall corner at (SE 027 278). Note: as a change of route for 2016, you must go over Crow Hill rather than around it. Turn left to make your way off the moor at (SE 028 279). Travel down the lane and across rough land to reach the road at (SE: 031 279) Take the long track along the Luddenden Valley to the Gate House at Castle Carr (SE 022 291) at the head of the valley, before taking the steep climb up onto the moor at (SE 018 290) On top of the moor you follow rough tracks to the wall corner and Calderdale Way at (SE 011 285). This is again an area of open moorland where navigation skills may be required. Follow the Calderdale Way to (SE 009 274) Follow a rough track following the wall above the golf course to meet your original ascent route just above Wicken Hill Farm. You then retrace the initial ascent route back to the Canal at Mytholmroyd (SE 011 262)
