Skirfare (Kettlewell) Trail Half Marathon
13th July 2019
This race forms part of the Due North trail half marathon series. Prizes for overall position in the series
This is a challenging race where the route takes runners over 3 tough, steep climbs and each descent thrilling enough to give you the adrenaline rush ready to take on the next climb. These tough hills reward you with spectacular views of wharfedale, some of the most beautiful scenery in the Yorkshire dales. Riverside footpaths, grassy descents and some technical, rocky sections make this a race not to be underestimated but definitely not to be missed.
From Grassington take the B6160 towards Kettlewell. After Kilnsey the road bares right towards Kettlewell, with a left turn to Arncliffe, Do not take the left to Arncliffe but immediately after on the bridge take the left turn into a field with a track. You will see the Race start here. Car Parking is in this field.
Runners will need to register at the tent in the car park by 9.40 to collect your race number.
The race will start at 10am from the same car park & registration field.
Toilets will be in the car park.
Spectators can spend the day here at the beautiful riverside setting with catering onsite or take your own picnic. Other good spots to watch are in Kettlewell, the village has parking, cafes, pubs and shops and the runners will pass through Kettlewell twice. Walkers can get to the top of the first climb from Arncliffe or Starbotton but please be respectful to local residents as parking will be an issue in these small villages.
Prize giving will commence from around 1pm
