About the event

The Last Howler.

A 5.6km timed/staged multi lap event. 


The first 2 laps are timed cut offs at 45 minutes. At the 46th minute, the next lap will begin.  If you are not back, you are out! 

After 2 laps, the time reduces to 40 minutes per lap for 3 laps. on the 41st minute, the lap will begin.  If you are not back, you are out! 

Once 3 laps at 40 minutes are complete, whoever is left will run at a reduced time of 35 minutes per lap... This time will be fixed and continue until there is one Last Howler.

A minimum of 2 laps completed qualifies a Bronze ribboned medal

3 - 5 laps qualifies a Silver ribboned medal

6 laps and above qualifies a Gold ribboned medal

* The Last Howler will take a overly sized Trophy home with him or her among some other cool stuff.  There is no gender cat, there can only be the Last Howler. 

Important to note. 

The quicker you finish a lap, the more time you have to recover before the next.

Just 1 second over the time cut off means you are out!  

There is 600ft of ascent per lap. 

It is a marked route

Every lap you will enter into a pen and have a box marked on your bib to show you have completed a lap in the time frame. 

Not that we think anyone will, but should someone be caught cheating, it will be an immediate disqualification and a bar to all future Howler Events. 

Howler Events is notorious for being tough and this is no different.  However, being tough should not put you off, it will be a fun event with a pub thats open for business at the start/finish line and we will lay food on too!  As it is a multi lap event with a pub, we welcome you to bring your families and make a day of it being in the glorious west pennines!
