Ackworth Half Marathon

13 Apr 2020

Ackworth, West Yorkshire
Starts: 09:30
Distance: 13.1 Miles
Entry Fee: £20.00 - £22.00
A race for whichever season arrives on Easter Monday! We've had them all over the last few years.

The best half marathon around on Easter Monday

We start and finish at the Water Tower Event Field in High Ackworth following a rural route out towards the attractive village of Wentbridge which has a reputed link to Robin Hood! There is a challenging ascent out of Wentbridge before the course turns towards Darrington then follows a loop back to Wentbridge with a long steady descent. The return route takes in the delightful hamlet of Hundhill then ascends along Sandygate Lane back to High Ackworth and the finish. This is a perfect time to test your early Spring fitness and preparedness for a marathon (just 2 weeks before London).
