The Start of a Summer of Trail Running!

The Maypole Meander is the first in a series of self-guided trail races that will be held on Wednesday evenings this summer. The race follows trails surrounding the village of Barwick-in-Elmet which is famous for its 86 ft high maypole. This trail race combines a scenic country run, with competition if you want it, then socialising with other runners afterwards. Every finisher will receive a £2 voucher to use in the pub! This is one of the most inclusive types of running event that there is, all you need to do is follow the simple route instructions to get around.

The fun part of the race is that you will use a set of clear instructions to guide yourself around the course. Run on your own or with friends. It’s easy, and you don’t need any navigation skills apart from knowing left from right. There’s an element of self sufficiency but with runners starting at intervals, another runner is never far away. All runs will be timed like a time trial, so if you do feel like racing then you’d better go 100% in case someone else is quicker!
