Ultra Kirklees Way

None stop, self sufficient, ultra marathon with 118 km - 73 miles with well over 4000 ft of accent

The clockwise route visits the upper Colne Valley, Spen Valley and Holme Valley and passes Dewsbury, Holmfirth and Marsden. Highlights on the route include a series of picturesque reservoirs including Holme Styes, Ramsden, Digley and Bilberry Reservoirs.

Most of the route is way marked but you will require basic navigation skills (some of this, you will be doing at night... we will NOT assist! The required maps and route descriptions are available for down load. (we did complete the whole recce without maps, but we also know the area!)


The UKW really brings something new and fresh to the running. The route showcases some of the areas hidden treasures
