Here are some historic results (thanks to Colin).  Nigel has also kindly provided this historic ranking of Rochdale leg times. 

Detailed maps and route explanations are here (thanks to Horwich Harriers).

For safety reasons this race has strict kit requirements.  All competitors are required to wear or carry a cagoule, over-trousers, hat, gloves, relevant map, compass and whistle.  Random checks are made at the start and end of each leg.  If any runner is found not to be in possession of ALL the above items, the entire team is disqualified.   For more information see the Halifax website
