    The race started last year from the Tarn, to allow complete freedom of expression () over route choice up the initial climb and later the descent.

    There were various routes taken with differing levels of success.

    I would be surprised if Bob wasn't planning to use the same start to allow similar fun and games.

    If I'm right, the start is only a few hundred yards up the small metalled path that leads up to Ilkley Tarn and which you take as the run out on the Ilkley Moor Fell Race.
    The only one who can tell you "You can't" is you. And you don't have to listen.

    Yep, I'm planning to be there. It's worth mentioning that it is surely over 5 miles though - very fast and runnable but took me about an hour last year

    Re: dick hudsons fell race

    Here is an extract from what Bob, the organiser, posted on the Ilkley Harriers web site the other day ..

    "The start will be at the Lower Tarn, as now has become custom, with registration opposite Darwin Gardens. As low-key and informal as ever, the idea is to get to Dick Hudson's and back, via any route you like, in any manner you like."

    So, parking and registration below White Wells on Wells Rd, just like the Ilkley Moor fell race. Start from the tarn that you pass just after the start of the Ilkley Moor fell race, ie a few minute's jog away.

    A quick glance at an OS map shows it's 10k as the crow flies.

    There's an interesting road bike option (via Burley etc.), but I'm guessing that "in any manner you like" doesn't include car, gyrocopter, etc.?
