A multi terrain course of approximately 10K, starting and finishing on Bramham’s playing field. Most of the route is off road on tracks and bridleways in pleasant countryside. It is an undulating course with the last section climbing steadily up a farm track to the top of Windmill Hill before descending through the lovely village of Bramham then up Almshouse Hill, fondly known as the Bramham Beast (steep but short) to the playing field. Neal Edmondson finished in 8th place and a time of 39:43.

Burton Leonard 10K
A challenging and undulating multiterrain single lap, starting and finishing in the school grounds. The course includes tarmac village lanes, loose farm track, bridleway and field. The event has been an ongoing success for over 30 years and attracts both competitive club runners and many non-club runners from across the region. It is ideal as a competitive and testing 10K route but equally suits casual and non-competitive runners who wish to enjoy a challenging, rolling route in the countryside. The event is a ‘not for profit’ operation, organised by the Burton Leonard 10K committee. Ian Brown finished in 1:25:06.

A beautiful run through the grounds and parkland of Nostell Priory. The route is two laps starting and finishing in front of the house. The route follows a mixture of tarmac driveways, well surfaced paths plus a section of grass parkland incorporating a beautiful section through the ‘tariff’ section of gardens around the main lake. Emma Harrop finished in 55:12 (2nd F50).
