Namer of the Clouds Series
A 3 race series over 10k, 10m and Half Marathon to commemorate Ackworth's connection with the 'Namer of Clouds', Luke Howard. There is a fabulous interlocking medal for each event depicting buildings associated with him.
Born in Tottenham in 1772 into a Quaker family he purchased "The Villa" (The Courtway) in Low Ackworth for his retirement. He was a keen amateur meteorologist and was the first person to classify clouds by their appearance. His daughter founded the Howard School.
