The Series

We are not a company, we are a volunteer fundraising partnership. We exist to put on fun, challenging local races which raise money for local causes in the South Huddersfield area. We are funded by generous local sponsors which mean we can donate to local schools, sports clubs and community buldings.

Enter the series at a discounted price, get a special momento and be in with a chance to win series prizes. Are events are run entirely by volunteers.

Which races count in the series, and how do I get my discount?

Your series discount is added automatically when you add all five races to your shopping cart. The following races count in the series: The Windmill 6, The School Run, Toss O' Coin, Shepley 10k, Stairway to Heaven. You can also get your discount if you enter the Half Marathon, but this race does not count towards your series standing.

What about Virtual Runs?

Our medals are finishers medals, as a momento for those who complete the race on race day. If there are spare medals after race day, we are happy to allow people to complete their medal collection with virtual runs ie provide evidence using Strava or similar. These are not guaranteed, cannot be pre booked, and are on a first come, first served basis. Virtual runs should take place after race day, and are allowed for people who have paid in full for the event and not completed it on race day. Virtual times are not added to race or series results.

In some exceptional circumstances, the organisers may permit those who have paid for the whole series in advance to request a virtual medal is reserved in advance of race day. This is a strictly limited arrangement for loyal customers who have, for example, become injured. We only allow one virtual medal per runner per year.

What about refunds?

We follow the standard refund policy from Entry Central, our booking system. Ask us nicely, though, up to 5 working days before the event, and we will transfer your place to another race.
