Ackworth Half Marathon
The best Half Marathon anywhere on Easter Monday!
The course is an undulating but scenic one lap rural route. It is run on generally quiet country roads and lanes other than for a short section (0.3 mile) of the A628, a 0.86 mile outward section and 1.5 mile return section of the A639. Road closures will be in effect for the first 2.5 miles and for parts of the last 2 miles. The race runs along the edge of High and Low Ackworth, through the small historic village of Wentbridge (both outward and return sections), the fringe of Darrington and the hamlet of Hundhill. There’s a bit of a hill in Wentbridge on the outward loop and for the last stretch up Sandy Gate Lane!
