Wensleydale Wander 2019 Report
There was a record entry of over 500 this year, with conditions that were excellent for running, though cold for the walkers, and very cold for the marshals!thumbnail view
First female home on the Long run was Sarah Hackett in 192.34
First female home on the Short run was Nicola Simpson in 94.56min
For the majority of walkers, with time to have a relaxed and sociable walk, while enjoying the views, this was another great day, despite the cold wind. Refreshments at Rubbing Houses on Middleham High Moor, the 13 mile checkpoint, are always appreciated, but the piping hot "real" sausages, cooked on a barbecue, were particularly enjoyed!
We would like to thank the RAYNET volunteer radio operators, our wives/husbands who have helped, and of course all walkers and runners for supporting the event. We will have raised in excess of £4,000 for charity, and President David Spashett presented a cheque for £2,500 to Yorkshire Cancer Research at the Finish in Wensleydale School, pending a final count up.
There are over 100 photos on the slideshow at the top of this page. You may find you prefer to click on the Thumbnail view and be selective- clicking on any one links to a larger image and better manual slideshow. Thanks to Rtn Chris Wheatley for the photos.
Next year's date is Saturday 18th April, so we hope to see you again!
