Castleshaw 24

Castleshaw Centre, Delph, Oldham, Greater Manchester

Organiser's Description

A twenty-four hour endurance event taking place on a 5k course in and around the incredibly beautiful valley that surrounds Castleshaw, in West Yorkshire.

The event starts at 11:00 Saturday 11 July - giving you over 12 hours of running before the sun sets just after 10pm. Then it's 7 hours of torch-lit running before sun up at 5am, and the final push for the finish at 11.00 on Sunday 12 July.

OK after a little pressure we have given in! We are adding a 6 hour, 12 hour, and now a huge 36 hour option for 2020.

Unless the weather forecast is very bad there is no mandatory kit, however if the weather forecast is bad (blizzards, heavy rain/winds etc) full body cover (long sleeve windproof top & bottoms) will be required. We will try and notify you by text & or email if we are expecting this but it is suggested you bring it just in case, you can always leave it in your car, tent or with luggage storage, if you do not need it.
