    A little. I'm new to fell running and as I live in York those NYM races are the easiest for me to get to.

    What do you want to know?

    Re: Guisbrough Moors Race

    Did a recce over 3/4 of the course last weekend, the going is mostly firm. The scenary is classic north yorkshire moors, with the added bonus of a sea view just before the final descent.
    The race takes in three of the area's classic landmarks, High Cliff Nab, Captain Cooks Monument and Roseberry topping
    Its my first time in the race, though live locally so know the terrain.

    Should be a good one.

    Is enjoying the running

    Apologies for being the Forum anorak but although the town is spelt Guisborough the moors (and race) are spelt Gisborough.

    Although not running this year (25m of Allendale the day before) I ran round it last Friday and can confirm the going underfoot is very very dry an amazing change around from last year when it was mud and swamp from almost start to finish.

    Have a good one !

    The reason for the difference in spelling is that the original ancient spelling is indeed Gisborough, in fact Gisborough Hall Hotel still uses this spelling. It appears that the Town spelling has changed over the years to it's current form.
    I have ran the Moors race route, or various parts of it, several times over the past couple of weeks and can confirm that its getting dryer (and harder) by the day, whereas last year we even had a 'white out' crossing the moor from Sleddale Farm to Percy Rigg.
    Hope everyone has an enjoyable run and looks like the weather is going to hold.

    A decent amount of padding, as it is pretty hard under foot. I crippled myself for weeks when I did this race wearing mudclaws!!

    If I go on Sunday I will wear Mizuno trail shoes.
