The Ilkley Trail Race returns to the race calendar this year. Based on a course very similar to the previous Middleton Trail race organised by the Round Table, the 6.9 mile out-and-back route takes in tracks through woodland, fields and moors, interspersed with some brief road sections. Virtually all of the climb is on the way out, but runners will be reinvigorated by the views over the Wharfe Valley and across to Ilkley Moor when they hit the moorland on the top......and of course, what goes up must come down, making for a very fast second half of the race.
This race is perfect as an introduction to to off road trail and fell running.
2008 a course record was set by GB international Steve Vernon 40.26 and in 2010 Sally Morley lowered the ladies record to 49.04.
