Report from Julian Mawson:
I think of this race as one of the classic scenic runs in North Yorkshire, up there with Bishop Wilton Half, Burn Valley Half and Burnsall 10 Miles amongst others.
Good to see Don Buffham beforehand who had noticed the signs for the race on his way back from the coast and nipped in for an unexpected race. I also met Liz supporting husband Chris Wordsworth at one of their now local races.
In truth, the race is nearer 7.25 miles and the route take in the beautiful vistas of Coxwold, Byland Abbey and Oldstead. I was very happy to take part for the fourth time since 2005 and reminisce along the way.
I finished seventh (42.31) and Don Buffham 210th (74.18). Full results here.
