West Yorkshire 5 Road Race

Date & Location

Birkenshaw, West Yorkshire

Organiser’s Description

The race was first run in 1974, and the instructions went something like this: "It’s easy, you turn left, go up to the top of the hill and left again. Stay on there for a couple of hundred yards and turn left and go all the way down the hill to the bottom. From there it’s left again and up the hill to the top, a final left and you're back.” Now over 40 years later it sounds just as easy, but the hills don’t get any smaller and the level bits don’t get any longer (don’t blink you may miss it). This race isn’t going to break any PBs - it's got lots of climbing involved! From West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters, Birkenshaw.
