Being a Yorkshireman this has to be THE run for me to complete after the BGR.
    Good to see this attracting some interest Wooj - it's long overdue. Yes there are just 4 completions so far so why not have a crack at it. It's not so much further than the Fellsman! It was actually inspired by the epic Yorkshire 2000's which had just 3 completions until last year. Matt Neale became the 4th in September after a gap of some 29 years!

    I was going to do it last year but did 3 peaks instead so this year it has to be done

    Just had a look at this Yorkshire round. 85 miles! And I haven't set foot on any of those hills in my life!
    Perhaps one for the future..

    There's something about North Yorkshire I'm just not sure about.. Maybe it's because I'm from Barnsley..

    Me and 3 mates are keen on an attempt of the Yorkshire round in summer 2015. Being reasonable local I will have enough time to memorise the route and perfect it. This long distance lark is pretty addictive.

    I hope it works out. The times so far are not particularly fast so if you get decent conditions you could set a new record. Good luck.

    The Yorkshire Round has piqued my interest too. I'm a bit tied up with other stuff this year, but it could definitely be on the cards for 2015.
