HUNDREDS of walkers will take to the streets of Calderdale on Easter Sunday to complete one of the UK’s longest running charity events.
The Halifax Long March raises money annually for Christian Aid.
It started in 1966 and since then has raised more than £330,000.
In this, its 43rd year, the organisers hope to raise £20,000 and aim for 250 walkers to take part in the challenge.
The walk leaves Halifax YMCA just before midnight and walkers then complete either a marathon or half-marathon by completing a secret circular route around Calderdale.
They must be at least 14 years old and helpers 18 years and over, but there is no upper age limit.
Application forms for walkers or helpers are available from Tourist Information Centres in Calderdale or the YMCA in Halifax or from the website at: www.longmarch.org.uk
