About the course
From Low Dalby visitor's centre, the first 2 miles are a steady uphill climb on a private tarmac road along House Dale and then at the top of the hill we turn right as the track levels off. First runners to summit get the King (and Queen) of the Hill prize! The surface continues as a compacted stone trail (uneven!), the track turns right. Now begins the fast and furious decent as we head down Sand Dale & Heck Dale. At the bottom, a right turn takes you along Dalby Beck and down the trail back to Low Dalby and the finish.
Runners assemble at start area (outside visitors centre) 10.50am. No need to pre-register. Runners must have number securely pinned on FRONT OF SHIRT. There will be 2 minutes silence before the start (as it is Remembrance Sunday). Course not suitable for skates or buggies or dogs. For safety, PLEASE no iPods. Min age 15 years.
EVERYONE GETS A SPECIAL 'GREAT BRITAIN' THEMED GIFT. MEGA!
Prizes to the first 5 men & women, King (and Queen!) of the Hill, first local man & woman (YO18 postcode only) and vet's prizes presented at visitor's centre 12:30pm. No prizes will be posted. You don't collect, it goes to charity (you can elect someone to collect).
