Moors Marathon – A brilliant day on the purple-clad moors

Splits are on the Results page

It’s a pity that there were only 27 riders but they raised £200 for the Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team. Some of the tracks were a bit muddy but the weather was much better than the previous day’s cold north-westerly wind. Thanks to Jens for another excellent map which he printed free of charge, Barbara for helping me at the start and finish, FC for not charging for a permit, the Fox & Rabbit for an excellent event centre and BMBO for waiving the levy fees. Finally, a special thanks to Frank & Sandra Appleton who were the marshals at Breckon Howe then collected the rest of the controls in after the riders had passed through them.

Hopefully, we will celebrate the tenth running of this event next year with a lot more riders.
