The best 10km-ish trail run in Kirkby Malzeard.

A brand new trail run for runners of all abilities with a mixed terrain route starting from the village of Kirkby Malzeard, near Ripon, North Yorkshire. The undulating (and sometimes hilly) route has been put together, tried and tested by local trail running vets and takes in quiet country roads, off-road trails, scenic moorland and a few rivers within Nidderdale AONB. It's part of the Kirkby Malzeard Big Weekend with live music, games, artisan food, Black Sheep bar and much more. £300 of cash prizes: > £50/£30/£20 1st/2nd/3rd male/female > £50 fastest club > £50 fastest local Plus we've got lots of fantastic prizes lined up that ANY runner can win! All runners automatically get ONE entry to the prize draw but you can massively increase your chances of winning by getting more runners to sign up - for each person you get to sign up you get an EXTRA entry in the prize draw. So getting just one person to sign up doubles your chance of winning a prize! Details on website. Prizes include: GRANTLEY HALL SPA DAY (worth £500!)
