    And best of all, it is actually 7 miles and 1100 feet.
    "...as dry as the Atacama desert".

    I thought it felt more than 600!

    I always clock 7 miles (It always used to be listed at 5). No idea on the elevation really as I don’t trust what my Garmin tells me. My watch time has me about 5 mins faster than last time I did it and I think I finished just inside the top 10.

    I have it as 7.06 miles and 1186ft with Garmin. Also Google earthed it at about the same with slightly less height.

    Results now on the Wharfedale website: http://www.wharfedaleharriers.co.uk/...-results-2014/

    It's a lovely race.

    Some route choices, not lonely because it is an out and back, the odd bike to liven things up, cheap as chips to enter and a can of lager for everyone at the end, the opportunity to pass the 12 Apostles, a traverse of the full width of the most famous moor in England + David Hird's enthusiasm. And the Ilkley locals are such delightful people!

    No wonder we keep it a secret to prevent tourists turning up in charabancs.

    I've told no one about it because I always want to finish in the top 50! Will be there next year. Was glad of the can of lager.

    Anyone run last night?

    It was seriously dry. I still hate those flagstones.
