    Calderdale Way Relay

    The entry form is up on the Halifax Harriers website.

    I hope this helps our fell clubs avoid disapointment.

    Everyone will need a copy of the Calderdale Way Guide book.

    That's right, and you'll need the OL288 Bradford and Huddersfield map too to cover the whole route. However, there are discrepancies between these latest OS maps, and the 1997 guide book, and you need to follow the guide book to avoid penalty / disqualification.

    Amazon links for maps: OL21 | OL288

    Unlikely but I'll ask around.

    which teams are entered so far
    The race does not always go to the swift, but to the ones who keep running

    Hot off the press, new for 2007:

    Leg 2:
    You must walk through the riding stables. A marshal will be here taking numbers and any team seen running through here will be given a 5 minute time penalty.

    Leg 6:
    From Southowram, go down West Lane and Change Lane as normal, but do not follow the signposted Calderdale Way halfway down Change Lane (which goes left through the fields at Exley) but keep on the road all the way down past the school on your left to the junction. Turn left into Backhold Lane, then first right down Exley Bank (steep cobbled road) to the main road. Then continue as before, i.e. cross Jubilee Road, then go right through gap in the wall, etc.

    Calderdale Way Relay update

    From Halifax Harriers...

    Almost 70 entries have now been registered for the
    Calderdale Way Relay 2007.

    100 teams is the absolute limit - without exception.

    In order to avoid disappointment
    , check with your secretary / team leader to ensure your club has been entered.

    Team leaders have been sent an information pack along with entry confirmation, containing explicit instructions regarding rules, kit requirements, leg cut offs and route changes, etc.

    PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ALL GET A COPY OF THESE FROM HIM/HER.

    After complaints from locals and land owners, there are some very drastic route changes this year, especially towards the end of leg 6 where the route will leave the Calderdale Way for a large section after Southowram.

    These are highlighted in the information pack sent to team leaders and will also be posted on the website at www.halifaxharriers.co.uk.

    Have a great day out with Halifax Harriers

    Re: Calderdale Way Relay

    Does anyone have working links to marked-up maps for each leg?

    Last year the Horwich site had excellent maps but the links no longer work.
    Biriani for endurance, pathia for speed.
