There are already cries for another event of the same ilk….and a winter version of it too! 80 runners took on the challenging 79 mile, 8307 feet route, with the added “benefit” of a gorgeous sun beating down, navigating the mileage and elevation profile to be rewarded at the finish line by a crate of Wold Top Wolds Way beer. All the participants also earned a commemorative limited edition WWRC bracelet and the respect of their supporters and fellow team runners.
Teams competed from East Hull Harriers, Beverley AC and friends, Driffield Striders, Barton and District AC and Caistor Running Club with all clubs finishing inside the projected finishing times.
The event raised vital funds for National Trails so that beautiful routes like the Wolds Way remain accessible to all.
Many thanks to Andy Tate, Beverley AC club president, and Jayne Dale, club stalwart, for organising the event which was a huge success and an example of excellent camaraderie.
