Explore God’s own country this 31 May at the Yorkshire Dales Festival and run or walk a series of stunning routes through this much loved National Park. Run for All invite people to get fresh air and exercise whilst challenging themselves in a beautiful location for charity.
The Yorkshire Dales are a popular place to visit due to the dramatic landscape including the three towering peaks – Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent – that form part of the Pennine range. The two trail runs and three walks suit all ages and abilities; families as well as individuals who can choose to take it nice and easy or push to their limits. They will be supported throughout by Run For All who provide event ID for each participant as a safety measure.
The 5-mile trail run is ideal for novices, taking them along a loop through fields, along riverside paths and a climb up Langcliffe before finishing in Settle. For those wanting a longer, tougher route, the 16-mile run will deliver limestone trails, hills, valleys and river paths along the Ribble Way.
Walkers have a choice of three distances: 5-mile, 16-mile and 26-miles with the first two using the same routes as the trail runs. The 26-mile is ideal for hardened hikers and adrenaline junkies training for an endurance event.
Every runner and walker will receive with a medal at the finish and all funds from this event donated to the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and OWLS Bereavement Service.
A champion day out is promised for all as emphasised by Head of Events, Tristan Batley-Kyle who says: “The festival has been designed to ensure anyone and everyone can take part.”
