Simon Collins 4:09:32

First run in 1954, the Race covers 37.4 kilometres ( over 23 miles )  with 1608 metres of ascent and descent over the most rugged and spectacular countryside in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, taking competitors to a height of 723 metres above sea level.

This year we had a much reduced ‘Knavesmire’ contingent .

Simon Collins was the only YKH vest wearer to complete the race this year.
He finished in 245th ( of 701 finishers / 767 started ) .

Simon was running strongly and maintaining a position in the top 200 upto the summit of Ingleborough, at which point the long downhill sting in the tail of this challenging race hit Simon. In his own words ” the wheels came off ” and he struggled on the final 6 miles losing time and places.

Jayson Cavill pulled out of the race at Ribblehead , at which point he had been going well in the top 70,.

Also running the race were :
YKH second claim runner Scout Adkin (198 th )  who was second Lady under 25 , with a time of 4:02:43 .

Ex YKH member Harry Holmes was 8th in 03:03:32

Ex YKH member Anwen Darlington was 83rd overall in  03:41:53 ( 8th Lady )
