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.

Plotted and organised by local, seasoned runners – Sean McKeag and Gary Bastow, it might 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
