Leeds Country Way (LCW), an annual race held around the end of August or the first week in September. The race, organised by Kippax & District Harriers, comprises of 6 pairs of runners in each team, running a leg (section) around the actual Leeds Country Way route a 62 mile-long footpath around Leeds that takes users through some of the beautiful and varied countryside surrounding the city.

An approximate total of 64 miles are covered, at a total time of around 7 hours. There are trophies for the fastest legs and teams, men and women, with a beautiful pottery memento for each finisher. Presentations and food are all at the Podger in Garforth after the event.

Route descriptions, available on the Kippax Harriers site or in the posts blow, are given to each participating team, and teams are encouraged to run or walk the routes before the race. This will help on the day as there will be stewards at baton check points, but not along the route itself.
