A scenic, multi-terrain course of approximately 10k, an undulating route mainly on footpaths & through Studley parkland

The race follows a scenic, multi-terrain course of approximately 10k. It is an undulating route mainly on footpaths through parkland. Starting on Hell Wath Nature Reserve, continuing up Whitcliffe Lane onto public footpaths through Mackershaw Woods and Studley Deer Park, passing Monty’s bench (in memory of our club co-founder and former club president). The course then heads out of the main gate at Studley, right, up Plumpton Lane, and returns via a short steep climb in Mackershaw Woods, across to Whitcliffe Lane and back towards Hell Wath Nature Reserve. Following a short section through the woods at Hell Wath, the course then emerges onto the field back to the finish. The course is not suitable for wheelchairs, prams or pushchairs. A route map will be displayed at Race HQ on the day. This year, we're supporting a charity closely connected to our club, run by a fellow Ripon Runner, the Upper Nidderdale Foodbank based at St Cuthbert's Church, Pateley Bridge. Donations have recently become sparse so we'd like to help contribute to their great work where possible. If you'd like to help support the food bank, we're suggesting you kindly bring your donation with you when you collect your race number. There will be a drop off point in Race HQ (Panthers FC, Hell Wath). The food bank has specifically asked for the following items if possible : Tins of baked beans, tomatoes, soups, meats & puddings, base sauces, jams, crisps, tea & coffee, milk, & toiletries, specifically feminine products, toilet roll, deodorants & toothpaste. Thank you 🙏
