The Wharfedale Harriers are holding a mid week cross country race on Wednesday 22nd July at Old Hall Farm, Gargrave, senior start time approx 7.p.m. The race is run over a five mile course starting in the field at the bottom of Johns farm lane ( approaching Gargrave from Skipton, turn right at the Old Swan Pub, follow the road along, turn right at the car park, over the canal bridge, straight ahead along Mark House Lane, high wall to your left, farm track on right and the field where the race commences). The course follows the track of the Pennine way over the fields to the wood at Calton, skirts the wood and returns by the same route. Approx 400ft climb. Entry fee is approx £3.
John challenges anyone to beat him in the race ( no big challenge ) !!
To avoid post race dehydration its back to the Masons Pub where the chairman may just get his hand in his pocket ( That is a challenge ).
