Burn Valley Half Marathon

The course is run entirely on minor roads. Starting in Marsham's market square and taking you through the grounds of Swinton Castle the course then follows the picturesque Burn Valley. It rises to the Leeds Pals war memorial near the top of Breary Banks. From there it drops down past Spout House Farm and returns via Colsterdale and the villages of Healey and Fearby. Turning right at Fearby Cross there is a fast downhill section before climbing back to Swinton Castle, just 1.5 miles from the finish at Masham School
One of the outstanding bits is the 100 metre climb from Leighton Bridge (at 5.5M) to the War Memorial (at 6.5M), and then, when exhausted, you throw yourself down a hill on a rough track to Spout House Farm. This photo of the bridge over the River Burn at about 3.6M
