Calderdale Way Relay 2015

On the 17th May it’s the Calderdale Way Relay organised by Halifax Harriers.

For those who haven’t taken part before, this is a team event comprising of 6 pairs of runners (teams of 12), covering over 80km around Halifax, Todmorden, and Hebden Bridge. Each pair covers approximately 10-15km in an effort to get the baton from start to finish.

Getting the baton round isn’t the priority with this race- the plan is to get the HPH teams from start to finish, and enjoying a day out in the hills of Calderdale (…and then some beers after!). Like the Leeds Country Way, this is a great team event…just with slightly bigger hills (and a map, gloves, hat, and compass). We’ve had a HPH team involved in the last 3 relays (2012 -> 2014).

The race itself is a brilliant day out and the lead up to the event involves some trips out to Calderdale to recce routes. The recce trips are an important/fun part of the race preparation.
