Here you can find information about The Hebden 2009 a challenge event to be run for the third time by Calderdale Group of the LDWA on Saturday, 3rd January 2009. There is a new start venue with showers and changing facilities due to further renovations in progress at the old one. The route this year has been changed to eliminate as many of the muddy sections as possible while still retaining the outline of the old route. In particular the muddy fields at Whams are no longer in the route. The route from the start is also different to avoid the barriers near the railway station and the consequent queue.
