Sir Titus Summer Trot 2018 Book your tickets

Saltaire got its name from Titus Salt, a successful weaver of beautiful fabrics that were used to make expensive dresses for the ladies of England. Titus moved his woollen mill from the centre of Bradford to just outside the city on the River Aire. This location along the river was important because it gave his mill access to what is now known as the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and to the railway. Along with this mill that was built in the mid-nineteenth century, Salt also built a planned, self-contained community especially for the workers in his new mill. This hidden gem situated near to Bradford is just gorgeous and perfect to visit after you complete your run with us. The village today has a very Bohemian atmosphere, besides the mill, most of the other buildings in the little village have been transformed in shops, restaurants, and pubs it is interesting to note that Sir Titus was a strong proponent against drinking. One of the more popular pubs in the village today is aptly named “Don’t Tell Titus… we promise not to tell him if you don’t! ‘Cum and run thee little legs off then av thee sen a pint int village’

The Titus Trot has something for everyone: first time ‘5k’ers, building on your distance or going the whole Ultra. It has a great atmosphere, brilliant support from fellow runners and it has Cake! Like always CAKE! All runners will enjoy the beauty of Saltaire (a World Heritage site) and everyone except the 5k runners will get to see Five Rise Locks, “the most spectacular feature of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal”, close up – lucky you! The route is along the fantastic Leeds Liverpool canal with some beautiful views. The tow path has been resurfaced and is predominantly flat (a few locks) and good underfoot (but some bits of mud).
