24th September - Cragg Climb

Start Time: 09:00
Cragg15 is a community group that formed to continue the impact and enjoyment from the Tour de France racing through Mytholmroyd and Cragg Vale in July 2014. Since its formation, numerous events on the longest continuous climb in England have been considered, but to recreate the TdF experience – and more importantly – create the opportunity for some iconic and safe events – a road closure was needed. Now, after years of planning, the application for a road closure is being granted, and on Sunday 24th September 2017 there will be the very first ‘Cragg Challenge’ – a festival of running and cycling that it’s hoped will provide the core of a marvellous day for the participants and the whole community. All events will take place on Cragg Road (B6138) with a start/finish line in Mytholmroyd. Registration will be at Mytholmroyd Community Centre – times for each event given separately – see the discrete event information for registration and start times on the website www.cragg15.uk
