IT’S a new year and a new Challenge.

Make the Examiner Charity Challenge one of your personal goals this year.

That’s the plea from organisers of the annual event, who hope to raise pots of money for causes close to the hearts of the hundreds who will hopefully take part.

There’s also a chance to raise that cash while enjoying a new look at our beautiful countryside, as this year the Examiner event, in conjunction with local Lions Clubs, will be back with fresh, new routes to get you pounding the Pennines.

All those keen walkers, cyclists and horse-riders can get in on the action with a challenge from our new base at Lepton Highlanders Sports and Social Club.

Bob Armitage, from Huddersfield Lions said: “We’ve moved from Meltham to Lepton. We wanted new walks and new views and we’ve been out trying out some of the new routes already.

“One of them went from Lepton as far as Emley and Highburton and the other to Old Lepton.

“There are some fantastic views. I don’t think we realised how high up we are but up there you’re at the same height as Castle Hill which is nearly 1,000 feet.”

There are challenges designed for everyone, with sign-posted three and seven-mile walks with staffed points as well as a longer 12-mile accompanied walk.
