Canal Canter Summer Extravaganza
A scenic, fast and flat, out-and-back route along the beautiful Leeds/Liverpool canal tow path, great for achieving PBs. Runners can choose their distance, from the ultimate challenge of the Ultra to the sprint of the 5K with 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon distances in between. Organised by the lovely folks at It’s Grim Up North Running.
