Nice introduction to ultra distances. Mixed terrain, maybe a bit too much tarmac for my liking. As said before, navigation is a bit tricky, it is worth sticking to the locals ;-) Good check points, with water, gels and cake, plus savoury food at half way. Very friendly and supporting staff.

An enjoyable ultra trail. A mix of quiet road, woodland, fields, farm and moor.
Had fantastic weather and the scenery was sublime.
It's a self navigated course and the maps provided are good, there are no marker tapes, except for a small section in Masham, so you need to concentrate - or follow someone who knows the route.
The section between checkpoint 1 and 2 has fantastic riverside woodland sections.
Good selection of cake, jelly babies,jells and isotonic water at the checkpoints.

A great Ultra over very mixed terrain. Well organised, with plenty of pre-race info etc. As the terrain is mixed between trail, forest, moor land, road and fields, best to practice on the trails and use trail shoes. The check point distances can vary (due to practical access issues) and you need to either know the course or be able to navigate a little (they provide a very helpful map). The checkpoints have a brilliant and famous fruit cake that helps the miles pass by. The start and finish are fairly low key but I liked that. All in all a great event that I would recommend to anyone, especially as a 1st time Ultra. Harrogate is also fairly close by if you want to make a weekend of it.

A race in stunning surroundings of mixed terrain from river banks to moors with stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales and finishing with a run through Studley Deer Park. Some navigation required I have done this race 4 times now. Great race, great organisation, great cake. Highly recommend it
