Canal Canter Summer Extravaganza 2018 Book your tickets

As the name suggests this is an out and back canter on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The route will start and finish at Kirkstall about 2.5 miles outside the centre of Leeds. Whilst this flat route is not particularly technical it’s a great opportunity to improve your own PB. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal is 127.25 miles in length, stretching between the busy cities of Leeds and Liverpool. It is in fact the longest canal in the north of England and passing through 91 locks. The construction began in 1770 and was completed in 1816. For those who are interested the engineers were John Longbottom, James Brindley and Robert Whitworth. Foulridge tunnel which is part of the Leeds and Liverpool canal has some interesting folklore surrounding it. The story goes that a cow fell into the water at one end of the tunnel, the cow then swam the whole length of the tunnel, (1 mile) before being pulled out at the other end and thankfully being revived with Brandy. So don’t get any ideas, no brandy will be available to revive any desperate runners. ‘Eeh bah gum, dunt fall int cut, as we waint be cumin after thee’
