Dewsbury details

Sunday's race at Dewsbury starts at 10am, near the Camira Fabrics factory, Hagg Lane, Mirfield, WF14 8HE. The course is 5.3 miles and it will be very muddy
There aren't any toilets nearby so please sort yourself out before you get to the start area. The coffee van will be there for your pre-race boost. Fancy dress is recommended and there will be prizes for the best efforts. Santa hat is a minimum requirement.
Car sharing is highly recommended. There is limited parking in the car park at the start/finish on Hagg Lane. For those of you going to the Flowerpot after the race we suggest that park on Station Road. You can then walk 5 minutes to the start. There will be signs and marshalls directing you to the start area, and parking generally.
If you are going to the Flowerpot please make sure you remove your (very, very, very) muddy shoes first.
Please note that there will be a cut off time of 35 minutes to reach the 2 mile marker. Anyone who does not get to the marker within that time will be re-directed to the start.

Baildon event details

Hi All.

Well, Race 1 has finally arrived and as current Champions, Baildon Runners, are delighted to host the first race on Sunday.17th November.

The race HQ is from Baildon Rugby Club, Jenny Lane, Baildon BD17 6SH. 

With the increase in the number of runners we ask that you please, please please car share. There is limited residential parking near the Rugby club as well as couple of small car parks at the club. Please do not block any driveways.

There is also a small car park at the Golf Club, further residential parking in the area behind and another small car park on the right, past the cattle grid. Please see attached map. 

The Rugby clubhouse will be open early for tea/coffee and number collection from your Club Rep. Please arrive in good time.

The race starts at 10.30am and is the same as last year on the beautiful Baildon Moor, near Baildon Golf Club which is a 5 minute jog from the Rugby Club HQ.

We have slightly amended the start which will hopefully ease the congestion of last year and will run up the side of the 18th Golf fairway. There is a competition on at the time of the race although we anticipate golfers will not have reached the 18th by 10.30am. 

They will however be using the nearby 1st tee and we ask that you respect our good friends at the Golf Club doing their chosen sport and keep away from that area.

There are limited changing facilities (usually for 30 rugby players!) with post race drinks and food in the Rugby clubhouse. Please remove/change your muddy running shoes. There will also be a raffle (we welcome any donations) and the race results announcements.

Good luck to you all and we hope you will again enjoy the Baildon hospitality and our iconic moorland course.
