Almost Actual Ackworth Half
1st November to 6th December 2020
If you're going to do a virtual race using the local roads, why not do one which has some relevance to where you live? You will also receive a fabulous medal which incorporates a local landmark and can be used to open bottles of beer!
We've devised a different course to the one we use for our annual event to make it easier to self navigate and safer for runners. Its a circular route - you can pick your own start point - just keep running until you arrive back. Should you not be local or wish to amend the route eg to run from home - its not a problem - just stop your 'timer' when you have completed 13.1 miles or 21.1 kilometres.
Want to be part of the Ackworth Half fun but not the best option for you? We have the answer to help you complete the distance your way:-
