|Advertised Statistics||Measured Statistics|
100 teams run this race each year, with 2 runners on each of 6 legs. That makes 1200 loonies in total.
The start in 2006 on Wainstalls road was blisteringly cold, but after only about a mile the hat, gloves and caggy came off. The start has narrow, wet and muddy. At parts it feels like you are going through someone's garden (they have put a gate across a public right of way). Short sections are on road and cobbles. The stone steps down to Shibden Brook are lethal - very slippery - beware. All in all a tiring 7.6 miles but damn good fun. Very well run and a credit to Halifax Harriers.
