    Re: The Hebden

    Hi Clive,
    Myself and a mate recced 18 miles of the course a week last tuesday, my mate was recovering from a cold so felt he couldn't do the whole 22 miles!

    Anyhoo, fantastic day, met a bloke in the co-op in mytholmroyd who overheard us asking for a taxi number (in full running gear with backpack etc) so peaked his interest, he ended up being a kindred spirit who couldn't come out to play that day but he still gave us a lift to heptonstall (hence minus 4 miles) - thanks buddy!
    What an ace day! Crisp snow, brilliant weather. Never done this before but seems to be an awesome route, thoroughly looking forward to this on the 21st. We actually deviated from the route and went up to Studley Pike and had our snap there, (well worth visiting and climbing inside for the views), it only added approx 1 mile to the course, well worth the effort because the actual route doesn't visit the pike itself, just comes close.
    Have a great day (quite jealous actually), enjoy!! ??see you there.
    Mark

    Thanks chaps, I'm really looking fwd to this, not sure about doing the event next Jan (not fit enough, maybe the shortie one), but I do like this Xmas reccie, it's fast becoming an annual event.
    Xmas beers tonight localish, then Xmas beers tomorrow in Leeds, hope I don't fall asleep!
    Will let you know how reccie goes. See you both soon.

    Re: The Hebden

    I've noticed that The Hebden is now full.
    I don't know if substitutions are allowed, but my daughter has an entry and now can't do the event, so if anyone is interested, PM me and I'll check with the organiser.

    That was a bit of a challenge wasn't it? Icy as hell. Lots of blood and bashed limbs on display at the end.
