loved it! hope this does become a regular event
What a glorious morning for an excellent race with a bit of everything - tough climbs and tricky descent (and not just the main one), fast track sections and plenty of mud/bogs particularly on the narrower paths across the moor. Reckon it was nearer to 7 miles than 10k(6.2m).*
Definitely one to do again in the future although maybe require a further marshall or two or extra tape in parts on a less clear day.
*edit: Measured it on Mapometer.com as 6.8 miles with 1400feet ascent/descent. Not sure how to change the distance on here though.
Excellent race, the 1st 15 went the wrong way at the 1st gate and I moved into 3rd place for a while
Found the results here, you will need your race number otleyac.org.uk
This should become a regular fixture imo: friendly, low key and run in beautiful autumnal weather & unrivalled Yorkshire scenery. Marshalls might be a little more animated but it would be uncharitable to criticise such a cracking event
