Skirfare Half Marathon
14th July 2018
A challenging race with over 1000m of ascent. 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 carpark by 9.40 to collect your race number.
The race will start at 10am from the same carpark & registration field.
Portaloos will be at the registration area.
Prize giving will commence from around 1pm
Spectators can spend the day here in the beautiful riverside setting with catering on-site or take your own picnic. Other good viewing points are 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.
