History of the race
Leeds Country Way (LCW), an annual event now in its 24th year, is held annually around the end of August or the first week in September. The race comprises of 6 pairs of runners in each team, running a leg (section) around the actual LCW route.
An approximate total of 64 miles are covered, at a total time of around 7 hours. There are trophies for the fastest legs and teams, men and women, with a beautiful pottery memento for each finisher. Presentations and food are all at the Podger in Garforth after the event.
Route descriptions are given to each participating team, and teams are encouraged to run or walk the routes before the race. This will help on the day as there will be stewards at baton check points, but not along the route itself.
If you've run the route before, the instructions sometimes change slightly, so make sure you've got the latest guides and route maps (see links above)..
There are cut-off routes for each leg, so make sure you know the start and cut-off times and where you need to be to start your leg of the race.
