    Great Whernside

    Looks like I may have no game this weekend, so looked at doing this.

    Any details?

    Looked around and can see nothing, where is it from?

    All I know is 11 am start?

    Cheers

    For some reason it's not listed in the online race calendar although it is in the printed calendar. It's at Kettlewell in Wharfedale GR 975726, start time 11.00 for women, 12.00 for men. It's a 4 mile out and back blast, all runnable if you're fit.

    Cheers David, plenty of info there. Suprised there was so little available on line to say it's a British Champs race?

    Looks a possibility,

    Also is there any social do on afterwards as it's the final race?

    Cheers

    I've not heard of anything. The prizegiving is usually in the King's Head. It's organised by PeeJay so you could pm him if you want need more info.

    The route is dead simple. It just follows the footpath from the campsite at 975726 to the summit and back via Hag Dike. Flat out all the way and it hurts .

    Sure you don't mean up and back down, rather than out and back!

    Don't forget your towrope David

    Don't forget it is the IHR the next day, so a lot of people will be staying sober 'til the Sunday night.

    Iain, have Eryri not got a mens team in the IHR?

    Not that I know of. I was thinking of making a weekend of it but I'll have the dogs with me. As it's a separate womens and men's race it's fine for them to come along, plan was then to do something maybe around Malham next day.

    Bollox!

    Have a cup game so that's why the fixture was free. So no race now.

    Thanks for the info anyway

    Cheers
