GMTR – 1st October 2017 – 11am

Race licence 2017-27388

Results from today’s race can be found HERE!

 Well done to everyone that ran the muddiest GMTR yet (how it should be at the beginning of October) – we hope you had a great run!

There was plenty of rain in the lead-up to the race, but it wasn’t bad on the day. Congratulations to our most improved time winner, Lee Stanley. Indeed, Lee was the only one of 23 runners that ran last year to post a faster time  – by 58 seconds – testament to the effect slippery conditions can have  on you!


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 soup.

Registrations will be at the village hall where you can enjoy a quick cuppa or some extra calories before you start the race.  Prizegiving will also be held in the hall  and refreshments for those not running the race will be available throughout in our lovely 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.

You can find the results of the 2016 event HERE.

  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
