The 14th Marsden Moors and The Marsden Moors Marathon

 

                Saturday 11th May 2024. Entries now open on SIEntries

 

A trio of circular challenging routes, 26.2, 23 or 18 miles, in and around the beautiful Colne Valley

 

Extended Route - The Marsden Moors now incorporates the Marsden Moors Marathon. We now have a full Marathon route. All checkpoints would remain the same but the cutoff for the Marathon is 2pm at Brun Clough CP, giving participants 3hrs to complete 8miles. An additional 3 miles will be added from the top of the descent to the footbridge over Blakely Clough. From here a path is followed to a ford and then down to Wessenden Reservoir embankment. Then Wessenden Lodge to climb to Hey Brinks. Follow Deer Hill Conduit to a path that descends via Round Hill to the B6107, Meltham Road. Then the Colne Valley Circuit and path to A62. Field path from Olive Branch restaurant to the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and then tow path back to start.
