Escape From Marsden Stocks

All you have to do is escape from Marsden Stocks.

The stocks stand in the centre of Marsden here in sunny West Yorkshire a short stones throw from our Mountain Rescue Team HQ.

You the luddites will gather around the stocks, ready to escape from;

19:00 for the 24 hour runners August 30th

07:00 for the 12 hour runners August 31st

10:00 for the 6 hour runners August 31st

Use any route, you choose, and run, walk or crawl. Just get as far away from the stocks as you can before your time runs out.

Using the miracle of GPS tracking technology, we will be watching all of you as you escape.

You will be judged on how far you have run, and reward accordingly.

Remember …The miles are measured “as the crow flies”, not miles travelled.

There is a little more to tell you

  • You can only escape the stocks on foot.
  • You can escape solo for 24, 12 or 6 hours, either male or female
  • If the dark scares you, you may escape as a pair
  • You make your own route, its entirely up to you as long as its legal
  • There are no checkpoints so choose your route wisely, you might need a shop or two
  • We will be keeping an eye on you from afar using our GPS tracking technology

All proceeds go towards the charity Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.
