It’s three weeks until our next event in Nidderdale on Saturday 19th May. It’s a 4 hour event, and it’s planned by Neil Reed:
Needless to say that during the planning process in March and April the weather has been at best damp and the ground has been soft and slippery – although my so called racing tyres no doubt didn’t help in that respect !
The event area is essentially an 8 km radius around the registration and finish based at Grewelthorpe Village hall just south of Masham. The River Ure runs through the area with limited crossing points which could be a factor in route choice.
The controls are spread on a selection of roads, tracks and bridleways. I had initially envisaged it might be a “fast” course, however there are enough hills and given the current soft ground this might not be the case !
We hope to provide basic refreshments but I am reliably informed there is a café in the village that should be open all day.
Car Parking has kindly been provided by Newholme Campsite located approximately 500m south of the village hall. I will try to ensure the usual signage is in place.
Look forward to seeing you the event.
