2020 Bluebell Trail

20 September @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

A challenging 10.3 mile multi-terrain race through woodland, canal towpaths, trails and cobbled streets with the occasional hill here and there. This unique course incorporates some of the most scenic views within the heart of Yorkshire and a refreshing river crossing to finish!

*Please note, to ensure the safety of marshals and volunteers, particularly those in the river, there will be a cut off point at approximately 7.5 miles. Any runners not making this point by 12pm will be withdrawn from the race and will not have times recorded.*

Please ensure you are able to make this cut off before entering the race.

There is also an overall cut off time of 2 hours 45 minutes.

The race will start at 10am.

Race limit of 500.

Toilet & shower facilities in the clubhouse.

Hot food & drinks available before, during & afterwards.

Race numbers are collected on the day. Registration opens at 8am.

The local bridge that was damaged in the 2016 floods is now back in full operation so we are back to using the original route.
Therefore, the prize for breaking the record, currently £400, will be awarded if the record is broken.

Andi Jones holds the current course record standing at 59:17. Ladies best performance is Sue Brown 1:14:34 Timing verification by the Bluebell Race Officials.
