Add to Calendar August 2, 2021 13:08 Holmfirth Harriers Event:
EVENT UPDATE: In-line with recent government advice this event will no longer take place in February

Details:

Please note this is not a replacement for the Club 5 as this will hopefully be run in Summer.

In February we will be running a virtual version of the usual summer 5-mile race. The race is handicapped so ANYONE can win! The race is FREE to enter and will have PRIZES for:

  • Handicap Winner
  • Fastest Male
  • Fastest Female

Please note this race is for senior members only.

The route will be very much the same as the standard Club 5 route, however, to ensure the safety of runners the start will not be on Gynn Lane (to avoid unnecessary road crossings). Here is a description of the simple route:

  • START – Junction opposite Station Road
  • RUN – follow New Mill Road (on the pavement) all the way to New Mill
  • FOLLOW – the corner round to the right past the Co-op onto Holmfirth Road
  • TURN RIGHT – onto Kirkbridge Lane for a short descent
  • KEEP RIGHT – at the bottom of the hill to stay on Kirkbrigde Lane for a short climb back onto the main road
  • TURN LEFT – to follow New Mill Road back towards Honley
  • TO REACH 5 MILES – follow the bend left from where you started to finish at Da Vinci's Pizza

Stop when you hit 5 miles on your watch. If you are not using a GPS watch then run to Da Vinci’s Pizza and note your time.

The route can be viewed online here:
