A fundraising event in Clapham, North Yorkshire, for the Cave Rescue Organisation (CRO) so no prizes and hence it was classed as a challenge not a race. Two distances on offer, 12 and 26-miles done as a run or a walk.
The Otley AC quartet of Liz Fawcett, Richard Hamer, Laura Martin and Caron Ralph undertook the 12-mile event which takes in half of the 26-miler by missing out an ascent of Ingleborough.
And the first 2.5-miles are mostly uphill.
Laura Martin was first home for Otley, and first lady, in two hours; with Caron Ralph, Liz Fawcett and Richard Hamer coming home 20-minutes later.
Richard said: “A very low-key event with around 100 people taking part, walking or running. Annoying showers for about the first 2.5-miles, and then it was sunny/overcast and windy in parts which was in contrast to last year’s constant torrent of heavy rain.
“The uphill start was worth it for the great descent after the limestone pavement that takes Three Peaks walkers between Ingleborough and Horton, and great fun running through the overflowing becks.
“Big thanks to Liz and Caron for dragging me around; think I was still tired after Thursday’s Harrogate League.”
