A ROMP ON OLD ROMBALDS MOOR
North Leeds Fell Runners proudly present Rombalds Romp. 13km / 8.1m with 370m / 1214ft ascent category BM fell race. It is partially marked and all runners will receive a map on entry. This is a Fell Race suitable for beginner fell runners. The route is multi-terrain over rough rocky tracks, heathery paths and approximately one mile of road up the back of the moor. The forest section is interesting and adds nice variety but take care as there are, not unnaturally, tree roots which are often slippery when wet. The little wooden bridges in the forest are also often slippery, especially when wet. Note the new clearance on the second section of forest, this path can be a bit tricky with old tree roots. Prizes in the MV40, MV50, MV60, FV35, FV45 & FV55 categories (number of prizes per category will depend on the number of entries). Only 1 prize per runner. The prize giving will be at about 12.30pm, at a local pub to be confirmed. Getting There & Car Parking Race HQ will be located in the car park on Wells Road, Ilkley. GR SE117472. If you want to enter a postcode into your SatNav, LS29 9JE is the nearest. Please park in this car park; once it is full, use Wells Road and adjoining streets (but show consideration for local residents: we don’t want to antagonise them!)
