    Calder Valley Rd-Good Friday

    Calder Valley Round - 16 miles and 4000 feet
    (as featured in the latest Fellrunner p 97 )

    I will be taking another run round this on Good Friday 2nd April probably joined by some 3 peaks contenders from Idle AC who will use it as a training run. The aim is to get under 3-30

    8-30 start from the White Lion Mytholmroyd.

    All welcome to tag along or go at your own pace using the route description from the website here

    Ok better start a list then. So far we have:

    Mountain Man
    Rachel
    Al Fowler
    Darth Domain

    plus some maybe's from Idle AC.

    It could be a bit slow for you Al but it should serve as a recce so you can give it some stick on a solo run!

    Hey im in no rush.

    I'll be coming on the train....is the meeting point far from the station?

    One question i was wondering last night, are there any steep-ish grassy desents all. I was just asking as to whether i needed to bring my decent x-talons that i try to save for racing or whether i'd get away with the little bit of grip my old'uns still have.

    No it's only a couple of hundred metres - just the other side of the river.

    There are a few good descents especially near the end but your old uns will be good enough - might slow you down a bit as well
