Sunday 28th July – James Herriot Run

Report from Dave Hainsworth:

The James Herriot Run, a scenic trail run of about 14km with 1,001′ of ascent over open moorland to the north and west of Castle Bolton near Leyburn.

Started with a ‘steady climb’ with another shorter one about halfway.

Heavy overnight rain had left a few sections of the route a bit “splashy” but apart from that, fast running without any navigational difficulties.

The race was won by Mike Jefferies (Unattached) in 55.50 and the first lady was Heather Halliday (Bedale & Aiskew) in 58th position overall (71.37).

For OAC, Andrew Ackroyd 82nd (74.43), Jackie Ackroyd 157th (83.59), Tom Hannnah 160th (84.21) and Dave Hainsworth 181st (86.49).

Results from ukresults and more details from Rotary Club of Wensleydale.
