I have a pair of grey Lotto leggings, a pair of black Nike trousers, a blue Mountain Range hat, and a small green map case, all of which were left behind after the above event.

Unfortunately I was ill last year but heard glowing reports about it, which made matters worse. Having done it this year last years reports were defiantly not attempts to wind me up! While it is not easy to come up with a bad route in that area of the country, this one was the best of the best. Excellent route, views, atmosphere and food. I have done much muddier walks than this one.
Thanks to all involved and see you next year.

What a marvellous mudfest it was. It was great to get out on the first event of the year and have a good blast to blow away the cobwebs that had accumulated over the holidays. All the well-stocked checkpoints were just what we needed to keep us going in tough old Calderdale in winter. I decided/was presuaded to eat more this year, so I enjoyed my first ever beef dripping sandwich in the woodwork shop, which chased down the chocolate cake from an earlier checkpoint. The food throughout was excellent.

Brilliant organisation, brilliant countryside, challenging route and a VERY busy and popular event. I'll be back.

Many thanks to Carole, Alan and the team for a fine day out in the hills, valleys and mud of Calderdale. Great atmosphere from a full entry of 300, well stocked checkpoints every 3 or 4 miles and an excellent meal at the finish - loved the apple crumble. Even the overnight rain stopped on cue.
