A fast fun packed forest trail run with some challenging uphills and rewarding downhills! Starting at the Myrtle Tavern in Meanwood, the inaugural Holly Hustle takes in some of the best trails that Leeds has to offer. A combination of beautiful Meanwood Park and the Hollies, famous for well-kept paths through extensive woodlands, with a vast collection of different species of flowers. Then onto the marvellous Meanwood Valley Trail, past the Seven Arches viaduct and Adel Crag. With the option of a quarter or two-lap half Marathon and free hot soup and crusty bread at the end there’s possibly no reason why this shouldn’t be on every fun-loving trail runners bucket list!
This course at this time of year is very likely to be a mud bath, we’d like to recommend all runners to wear appropriate footwear. Due to the nature of the course (narrow paths, technical sections) headphones are not recommended for this event. This course contains one small private road section (marshalled) and runners will be advised to stay on the pavement where possible.
