Event Description

It's back!  Again.

After a successful return last year, the Ackworth Half Marathon has a new Easter Monday date in 2016!   

This year, the race also incorporates the Yorkshire Vets AA Championships, which is open to all members of clubs or individuals affiliated to the YVAA.

The race will be run from the Ackworth Water Tower event field once again and follow the same undulating route taking in the surrounding villages of Wentbridge, Darrington and East Hardwick.   We'll also have:

  • Chip Timing with results on the day!
  • Tech t-shirt and goody bag for all finishers
  • Water stations
  • Cash prizes for first 3 Men, Ladies & Vets categories (according to entries)
  • Awards for YVAA age categories

Taking place on the 28th March, the race will provide the perfect opportunity for some race practice and extra mileage for those training for London and other spring marathons.
