James Herriot Trail

On Sunday 27 July, The James Herriot Trail Race, a very popular 14 km event, offered spectacular views through Wensleydale and Swaledale. Starting from Castle Bolton, and after an initial steep ascent near the start, runners take a high ridge route before descending back down into the valley for a fast and flat finish.

First home for the club in 25th position out of 218 entrants in 65 minutes 38 seconds was Ben Imeson, followed by Allan Hansen in 70:41. Ray Johnstone took 5 minutes off last years effort in 75:57, with Matthew Holt (79:57), Anneke Imeson (80:35), Stan Appleton (85:03), Jill Holt (90:23) and Paula Johnstone (118:54).
