100K, 50K & 25K Challenge
Saturday 21 to Sunday 22 October 2023
The Yorkshire Trod is back for 2023
… and we’re introducing a NEW 25K option!
100km, 24 hour challenge event based in the Yorkshire Dales starting and finishing in the village of Grassington.
There will also be a 50km option, which will be open to walkers as well as runners with and 18 hour time limit.
This is a self-navigated, low-key event with no way markers and few marshals so map reading, navigation skills and experience on the fells is a requirement of entering this race and you are agreeing to this rule when entering.
The route takes you through Threshfield to Weets Top at Malham, along the shore of Malham Tarn before heading across the moor descending into Arncliffe. From Arncliffe (check point and food station) you will go through the villages of Litton, Buckden, Starbotton and Kettlewell (the 100 will climb Bucken Pike H-702m) before returning to Grassington where the 50km will finish.
For the 100 you will recharge at the food station in the institute then continue to Burnsall. The route heads towards Trollers Gill dropping down to Parceval Hall before the climb of Simons Seat.
Eventually you will cross near Barden Tower/Strid Wood climbing to Barden/Embsay moor for Cracoe War Memorial. You are now in sight of the finish, descending into Thorpe then making your way back to Grassington for a hot meal at Grassington institute.
Start 8am | Grassington Devonshire Institute, 48 Main Street, Grassington, BD23 5AA
