HOLME HOWLER COURSE 2015

START

The Community Field is where it begins. Plenty of parking is available here. Make sure you arrive early to prepare, get your race numbers and do your stretches!

FIELD 1

Once you've made your way through the first set of houses you come to FIELD 1 where you will encounter a few obstacles. You will have to do some climbing and be prepared to get a bit wet...

NORTH ROAD

A nice flat run up through the village, a few of the locals will be out cheering you along! 

THE CANAL

Now to the canal. It's uneven in some parts so sensible footwear is advised. A short run here until the next field...

FIELD 2

A nice big field with some nice big obstacles in. You'll be going up and over and under things in this one. If you're not in a team you might need a helping hand here!

RUN!

If you're wanting to catch up on some time, run fast down Station Road to catch up some time and squeeze your clothes out!

HALF WAY!

After being led to this point you've hit half way! In this field, expect to be lifting things up and down this steep hill. Then the iconic slide, enjoy! Expect to be tested in this field!!! The water station is on the way out of this field so don't forget to rehydrate if you need to.

BARS AND TUNNELS

More obstacles down The Beck and Moss Lane. You'll be climbing again and using your upper body to swing through. There might be a tunnel too...

NEARLY THERE

One of the hardest obstacles would be to run past the pub without going in! The Smithy Inn staff will be out cheering you on as you approach the finish. Once you hit the finishing field, you've guessed it, a few more obstacles to test those tired bodies!

FINISHER!!!

If you've made it to the end (in one piece!) you get your goodie bag, medal and tee shirt. WELL DONE you've done it! Stick around for some food and drink on the field, you deserve it!
