Yorkshire Wolds half marathon – Saturday 20 July, 11.00am

Dentdale Run (14.4 miles) – Second Saturday in March 2014   

Entry form early next year:

A great race and a great place to stay for the weekend! The first 5 miles is hard, but not too bad after that. Accommodation is available via the village web site.


Any Marathon!

The final ‘long’ race is any marathon of your choice. All you need to do is run the race and send the results to Sally Campbell. At the end of the year the person with the fastest time will get 10 points and so on. You could say this gives an advantage to someone running an ‘easy’ marathon, but no marathon is easy and they all measure 26.2 miles!
