Leeds Liverpool Canal Marathon Walk for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust

On Sunday the 6th of November'Team Griffiths & Hartley' and friends will be walking a Marathon along the Leeds Liverpool Canal to help raise money for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust. Why not join us?

Last year we accepted the daring challenge to go down the Fastest Zip Slide in the world! The zip line in Snowdonia has a maximum height above the ground of 152m and reaches shocking speeds of up to 165 km/h.

The money raised went to The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust Charity, who fund the research and support of Teenagers and Young adults with cancer throughout the UK. 

We have been supporting The Laura Crane Trust since 2012. and last years £1009.16 brought our running total to £3,187. 

This year we thought we would take on a marathon task of walking 26 miles of the Liverpool to Leeds Canal on Sunday the 6th November 2016.

We will be starting at Bradley Aqueduct 43a and Finishing at: LEEDS – No.1. The address for the starting point is on Lngs Lane, Bradley, Keighley on the bridge there is the slip path to get to the canal. Therefore, the time we will be starting is at 7am to get the most sunlight in the trip as possible and therefore hopefully finishing before dark

  • Silsden

  • Bingley

  • Saltaire

  • Shipley- hopefully with enough time for lunch.
