Moors the Merrier will be even better for 2024! You may notice the price has increased slightly, this is to cover the addition of Open Tracking to our event. Your friends and family will be able to follow your progress around the route, but more importantly so will we. In the event of bad winter weather this will help to enable us to ensure your safety. 

So, start the Christmas period with a great walk or run around the moors of Hebden Bridge.

A 21-mile circular route, starting and finishing at Hebden Bridge Golf Club. The anti-clockwise route takes you over Midgley Moor, Wadsworth Moor, Heptonstall Moor, Erringden Moor and finally the big climb out of the valley back to the Golf Club.

It's Christmas so essential kit must include a Santa Hat and also a present to hand in (worth no more than £5) for the Bran Tub afterwards.

Participants can look forward to a hot meal afterwards and there are changing rooms with showers available.

As it's winter, all participants MUST carry the following equipment.....

  • Santa Hat!
  • Present for the Bran Tub (Max £5 to be handed in at registration)
  • Waterproofs (top and bottoms) with taped seams and jacket must have a hood
  • Hat and gloves
  • Map, compass & whistle
  • Plastic mug for hot drinks on route (optional)
  • Spare long sleeve top
  • Spare food and drink
  • Survival bag
  • Headtorch

Distance - 21 miles with 3900ft of ascent

Venue - Hebden Bridge Golf Course, Great Mount, Wadsworth, Hebden Bridge, HX7 8PH

Start Time - 8am walkers & Non-competitive runners; 9am race start.

GPS devices are only allowed as a safety backup but note that the route is not flagged and so will require navigational skills. Participants must follow the route description due to access issues over the moors and visit all the checkpoints in the correct order. Final details for the event will be sent via email the week before the event.

Age limit for the race is 18. Under 18's can take part in the walkers/non-competitive class if accompanied by an adult.

Dogs are allowed on the early start only but must remain on a lead at all times.
