The routes

This year's Rescue Ramble starts and finishes at our headquarters in Marsden (Grid Ref. 049 114 : Emergency House, Manchester Road, Marsden, Huddersfield, HD7 6EY). There are three routes to choose from: 25 miles; 16 miles or 8 miles.

  • The 25 mile and 16 mile routes include sections of the Meltham Way, Kirklees Way and Pennine Way as well as the old Packhorse trails around the area.
  • The 8 mile route is a circular walk around the Wessenden Valley and also includes a section of the Pennine Way.
