    Lyke Wake Race

    LAST YEAR SAW another high number of entries in the annual Lyke Wake Race, an internationally known hill running (and walking) event, which has taken place since 1963, covering forty two miles, and many thousands of feet of climbing on the North York Moors National Park.
    The route, which attracts competitors from all over the country, traverses this moorland area of North East England, from the village of Osmotherley near Northallerton to the North Sea Coast at Ravenscar, just north of Scarborough.

    Entries for this gruelling race, being held on Saturday 7th July are now being accepted. The race is open to runners and walkers, including team entries from athletic clubs, but all must finish the course within the maximum time of twelve hours.

    A handicap system, of staggered starts, is based on entrants previous best times or on their own estimates – with a built-in safeguard to detect fraudulent claims!

    Apart from the start and finish there are a further seven check-points which provide food and drink to the expected 150 entrants, for safety reasons communications are provided by the Raynet organisation.

    Several annual trophies, sponsored by ‘The Dalesman’ magazine will be presented by the Ryedale MP, John Greenway, at the Raven Hall Hotel in Ravenscar.

    Application forms and details of this race on Saturday 7th July are available, with a s.a.e., from the Race Director, PO Box 24, Northallerton, DL6 3HZ. Or downloaded from the Lyke Wake Website www.lykewakewalk.co.uk The closing date is 16th June, that means the 16th not the 17th!

    Further details if needed by e-mail from lww@btinternet.com

    Harsh but very funny.

    I've been on a race earlier this year where I was stood on the start line next to a guy who had no bumbag, asked him where his waterproof, map, compass, spare food etc were and he said he didn't think he needed any he was just going to follow the guy in front The race was a 40+ miler.
