Route Update 7th November 2015

The big news this week is that part of the route which is run along the canal has suddenly been shut for 6 weeks. This is due to emergency work as part of the canal has collapsed and requires urgent repair. Therefore, due to this unforeseen problem the routes for all the races have been changed. The marathon route is only been slightly affected. The half marathon route is still 1 lap and mainly along the canal but in the opposite direction. The ultra marathon has been changed from 2 laps to 4 laps. The new routes can be viewed on the Kirkstall Harriers website, Thank you Chris Glover of the Kirkstall Harriers. Apologies for these late changes but we hope you can appreciate this is due circumstances outside our control.
