Autumn will soon be on the way and the challenge of the Haworth Moor weather, you all know you love Penistone Hill and the pleasure it brings. Can any youngster beat last year's winner, 47 year old Ian Holmes on his home turf, or will Ian make it 6 wins? Can anyone challenge Olympic Triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee's record of 41:28 and Jo Waites record of 48:29 both set in 2006!

NB: entry forms for the Auld Lang Syne race will NOT be available at Withins this year due to the Withins race being earlier than normal, this will stop anyone sending in entries early. But entry forms will be on the website on 31st October for entries to open on 1st November.

But 3 entries for the 2013 Auld Lang Syne race will be on offer to Withins runners in the free prize draw, you must be at the Old Sun Hotel prizegiving to win. We are taking a leaf out of the Junior Rat Run races by introducing senior fancy dress prizes with the theme being Halloween of course. So is there any witches, horrors or monsters out there who fancy a run?

Curly Wurly Rat Runs

CS. Date & venue as above, starts from 10.30. 1 entry on the day only.
U8 (over 6) 0.8km/30m; U10/12/14 1.6km/50m; U16 3.2km/100m. (Sorry, no U18 race) See the Quarry Runs page for records and a course map.

It's Rat Run time kids so let's see you trying to follow in the foot steps of Olympic Triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee by winning a Quarry Run which he did in 2001. Don't worry too much if you're not on top form, remember when Jonathan Brownlee ran in the BU12 race he finished fourth and look at how he has become a world champion now.

Remember for the not so fast runners out there, you can always run in fancy dress - we have many chocolate prizes on offer, the theme is anything ratty or Halloween. We're sure there's a few little horrors or monsters out there, and we want to see them, even though mum and dad don't!
All finishers receive a Precision Pest Management goody bag containing a Cadburys Curly Wurly, a Flump, bag of crisps, popping candy, a chocolate mouse and a Curly Wurly Rat Run certificate along with a carton of pop.
Prizes are extensive with at least the first three boys and first three girls in U8, U10, U12, U14 and U16 all having choice of the table, plus all prize winners will collect a toffee or chocolate apple including fancy dress. To end the day with even more fun don't forget the famous chocolate throw out.
