GMTR – 3rd October 2021 – 11am

Race licence 202 12021-41510

RACE NOW OPEN 

It is with great pleasure that we can announce the return of this much loved race.   For those who have made this a regular haunt – we look forward to seeing you again.  You can enter the race NOW via the RunBritain webstie..  For those who have yet to try us out – then take a look at the pictures ‘and comments’ from 2019.   Check out the photo gallery on google.

Now in it’s 7th 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.

We are a charity – so you won’t find any swanky gifts or flash prizes for entering our race.  But we do want to recognise your support, so our kind sponsors donate a range of modest prizes.  Please note this years prizes are yet to be determined.

As a community run charity, we want to make our events accessible to all, so we keep our entry costs low.  Entry is just £14 for affiliated members and £15 for non affiliated.  Online entries close on 1st October.  If the race is not full, then you may be able to enter on the day with a credit or debit card, for £16 – but you will have to register before 10am.

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.  Just take a look at this wonderful video of the course to see what you’ll be missing if you don’t sign up.

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.

  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
