This is the same course as last year. It is mainly on good tracks and field paths with shorter road sections than previous routes. Trail or fell shoes will be needed in wet conditions but in dry conditions (if you can remember what they are!) runners could use road shoes. The course is just less than 6 miles (approx. 9.75 km) and climbs gradually to the same high point as previous years (290 m in total). £5.00 entry on the day (£1.00 goes to host club).

Dales Duathlon
Apr 5 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Dales Duathlon @ Brantingham Hall | Elloughton | England | United Kingdom

The Dales Duathlon is set to be a fantastic event, based in the beautiful setting of the East Yorkshire Dales.

The race will be hosted at Brantingham park, East Yorkshire and will provide racers and supporters with a grandstand finish, live entertainment and sports specialist stalls.

The route

The first run is a flat road run of almost 5km on partially closed roads. You will head out of Brantingham park and around in an anti-clockwise loop through Elloughton and back to the park.

You will enter transition, grab you helmet, bike and a quick drink before heading out on a testing and undulating (some say hilly) 20km bike route. The route heads out across the beautiful Wolds in an anti-clockwise loop which is repeated twice.

 Your final entrance into transition will see you drop off your bike and prepare for the final 5km run. This section is a tough and challenging off road route that will take you through muddy woods and down steep dales.

You will finish with a final loop of the park for the whole grandstand to see before finishing in front of the well stocked bar.

Parkrun 5k – Harrogate (on The Stray)
Apr 11 @ 8:45 am – 10:00 am

Abbey Runners has decided to target a local Parkrun 5k on the second Saturday of every month, rotating around the three main Parkruns in Leeds and then targeting a different one every 4th month.  The aim is to get more Abbey Runners together at these fun, free races.  It is good speed training and also  encourages people that are new to racing to have a go at a 5k!

It would also be good if we can organise car sharing for those that need to drive and nearer the time.

Note that UK Parkruns start at 9:00 am every Saturday (unless communicated otherwise.)

For those unfamiliar with Parkruns:

“Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.

These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and we encourage people of every ability to take part; from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians; from juniors to those with more experience; we welcome you all….”

You will need to register and print off a copy of your personal bar code. You results will then be maintained online for you whichever runs you do (even internationally!). Please note that Parkrun is run by volunteers and all adult participants are requested to help out 3 times per year in return for these free races – it is only about an hour of your time.”
