Midwinter 18 km Riverside Trail Road Hybrid Race
Great Owl running presents the inaugural Kirkstall Calverley Cutter. An 18km Trail / Road Hybrid Race consisting of approximately 9.5 km riverside path and trail / 4.5 km Canal Towpath / 4 km pavement. The Course starts on the Leeds Liverpool canal but soon meanders off on a loop taking in the sights of the fantastic River Aire, Calverley Cutting and Kirkstall Abbey.
Race registration and finish takes place at the award winning Kirkstall Bridge, on finishing all runners receive a delicious pint with their race number (or cider / glass of wine / soft drink) and a cosy warm atmosphere after what will certainly be a very cold January race!
Although the route is relatively simple the course will be part marked and marshalled at key areas and all runners will receive a route map / description upon entry.
The race will finish back at the Bridge pub and we will administer some kind of gong or bell system, so a mad dash to ring the bell will be part of the fun.
Route Map (provided)
All runners must carry a warm jacket / extra clothing suitable for winter weather
Water Container (From January 2019 onwards Great Owl events are going cupless. There will be an aid / refill station at 8km, we’ll bring all the haribo!
