The Avove Yorkshire Run for WaterAid - 5k & 10k

Located in the Washburn Valley on the southern side of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the scenic Swinsty Reservoir is a popular site for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The accessibility-friendly paths provide a great basis for a running route, where the relatively flat nature of the reservoir circuit lends its self nicely to a PB-challenging pace! Note that most of the race takes place on roads or paths, with short segments on a flat dirt track. Course is mainly flat with only one moderate hill. All money raised from the event helps WaterAid bring clean water to 130,000 people in Ethiopia. Yorkshire Water and WaterAid have committed to raising funds for various projects in Ethiopia – all funds and sponsorship raised from this event go towards achieving this goal. Note that due to the location and parking facilities, car sharing is encouraged, with a discount to the entry fee and priority car parking for cars with multiple occupants.
