Worth Way Challenge

11 Miles / 17.5km S

 An informal time trial over a full lap of the Keighley Worth Way footpath to be completed in runners own time.


This is a circular[ish!] footpath taking you on a route that passes in the approximate vicinity of each of the 5 Trains Stations on the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway before returning you back to Oxenhope Station again. Oxenhope – Haworth – Damems – Ingrow – Keighley.
The first section of the route covers the Western side [Oakworth] of the Worth Valley before dropping down to the valley bottom and following the approximate route of the River Worth to Keighley Station. Here the route turns back to return to Oxenhope via the Eastern side [Hainworth] of the valley.
