GMTR – 2nd October 2016 – 11am

Race licence 2016-26629.

 

Well done everyone on a great race. We hope that you had a great time and will be back next year! You can find the results of the 2016 event HERE.

Well done to Alex Kiel for knocking over 3 minutes off the previous record despite the course being 180m longer! The marshals did say that you seemed to be wearing an anti-gravity belt!

We hope that the winners of the FREE prize draw for Afternoon Tea for Two at Swinton Park and an OMM Belt Pack enjoy their winnings.

RACE DETAILS HERE

Now in it’s third year, this challenging course takes in some of the toughest climbs and best views in the area, as you work your way up back roads, farmers’ fields, fords, moors and woodland – adjacent to the Swinton Estate near Masham.

This may be a slightly more challenging course than the average multi terrain, with some interesting ascents that are well worth the effort, but it is fast gaining interest among local runners.

This 13km multiterrain single lap race climbs above and descends back into the picturesque Dales village of Grewelthorpe (near Masham) and finishes just outside the village. Make your way to the village hall after your race and enjoy your free tea/coffee and flapjack.

Prizegiving will be on the village green opposite the pond and refreshments will be available in the the recently renovated Methodist Chapel that houses the Hackfall Café as well as an exhibition of art.

Both men and women aged 16 and over are welcome to take part, from novice 10km runners to seasoned athletes.

  1. Many thanks to the team and sponsors (and the weather) that made the inaugural Grewelthorpe multi-terrain such a good run – couldn’t fault it and the hills weren’t quite as gruelling as we were expecting and the views just as promised. The relatively small number of entrants gave it a nice feel but I guess that as word gets out, the numbers will increase, which will be good for the village hall.

  2. Good race, well organised.
    Thanks to the marshalls & flapjack makers.
    We’ll be back next year and spread the word amongst our friends.
    Bob, Mark & Trev
