Ilkley Trail Race
The Ilkley Harriers Trail Race made its inaugural appearance on the race calendar in 2008. The 6.9 mile out-and-back route takes in tracks through woodland, fields and moors, interspersed with some short road sections. Virtually all of the climb is on the way out, but runners are reinvigorated by the views over the Wharfe Valley and across to Ilkley Moor when they hit the moorland on the top, for a very fast second half of the race. First Harrier home was Ed Newbould in 50:05. He was followed by: Paul Gidlow 51:17, Brendan Foley 55:04, Theresa Duckett 1:03:49, Jane Webster 1:04:06, James Mangeolles 1:10:07, Victoria Brides 1:12:11 and Tommy Dickson 1:17:56. 219 runners finished.
