    West Nab Champs

    So, the circus moves south across the M62 from Mytholmroyd (big thank you to Al & his team for a great set of races at Coiners) to Meltham & the West Nab races on May 31st.

    Last held in 2004, Holmfirth Harriers & Meltham CE Primary School are looking forward to hosting the races once again on what will be slightly different versions to when the Brownlees were winning the U12's & U14's races!

    Attached is the link to our race page on the Harriers website, which gives details of parking, registration, race timings, distances, climb etc:

    We are very grateful to the local farmers & Meltham Shooting Club for allowing us to race over their private land. We will be posting a 'training route' map on the website in due course & would ask that if anyone does wish to recce their route prior to race day, they keep to the public & permissive footpaths only. The actual race routes will be available at Registration on the day of the race itself.

    The Junior Championships have been a great success so far this year, with ever increasing numbers taking part. We look forward to welcoming you all to the Holme Valley on May 31st & anticipate another set of keenly fought races.

    Cheers,
    Phil Hobbs,
    Holmfirth Harriers

    Looking forward to it. I'll see how many Eden Runners we can bring down from Penrith.

    OK folks, update for you - there are now maps of the routes available via the Harriers West Nab race page.

    For those of you able to get across for a look prior to race day, can I just remind you that the quarry above Sun Royd Farm is private land and must not be crossed other than during the race itself. The area has been marked on the map so there are no excuses! The farmer has very generously allowed us to use the quarry for the race, but this would be jeopardised if people ignore this request.

    Here's the link again:

    Simply scroll down to the race you're interested in, click on the link next to it & the map will open & can be printed.

    We've been out tonight in the rain & all looking good so far. Might have to get the scythe out for some encroaching bilberry & heather, but looks like we'll beat the bracken!

    Hope to see plenty of you on the day. Now where's that sunshine gone?!
