    About the event
    From the organiser

    All Hardmoors 26.2 series races will be taped and signed to help with navigation but in some situations signage and tape can go missing on the day of the event (whether it be accidental or deliberate) So competitors will be provided with a downloadable race route description and downloadable maps of the course which are to be used if tape and signs are not apparent. It is the competitors responsibility to navigate themselves throughout the course.

      I have done Hardmoors marathons before, but not this particular one. The race started in the village of Chop Gate. This particular route was hilly but that gave stunning views. The organisers marked the course with ribbon, yellow ans red. but route descriptions and maps needed to be carried, though I never needed mine, fortunately the weather was lovely so I didnt need the waterproof jacket, hat and gloves off the compulsary kit list. I did however need the litre of fluids that we were advised to take. The actual marathon length was 27.11 as all HM events are longer than stated, more miles for your money.Tough as it was I loved it and thouroughly reccommend it .

    The Castle Howard event in July promises to be a memorable run on the southern border of the North York Moors.

    From the organiser

    As the name suggests this is an out and back canter on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The route will start and finish at Kirkstall about 2.5 miles outside the centre of Leeds. Whilst this flat route is not particularly technical its a great opportunity to improve your own PB.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    With the old English name of Elmeslac, Helmsley predates the Domesday Book. It was first settled in around 3,000 BC and small farming communities lived in the town throughout the Neolithic period, Bronze and Iron Ages and into Roman times. The lands around Helmsley were held by William the Conquerors brother. You can still visit the ruins of the Norman castle, and see ancient oak trees in Duncombe Park dating from this time.

    The oldest surviving house in Helmsley is the medieval Canons Garth, the vicarage. The Norman castle, dating back over 900 years, evolved over the centuries, from a mighty medieval fortress to a luxurious Tudor mansion, to a Civil War stronghold and a romantic Victorian ruin. It is open all year round for visitors to enjoy, under the care of English Heritage. The Walled Gardens also enjoy a historic past, tracing their roots back to 1759.

      Well organised run on a very scenic and hilly route. Great, friendly marshalls and plenty of drink stations. Will definitely do it again.
    • Did the event in 2018

      It was a hot two laps for the half marathon, but the scenery was stunning, the marshalls out on the course were all friendly, and the signage made navigation easy. Some tough hills, a lovely set of steps, and some rough terrain in parts.It's not often you do a run and feel like the organisers and marshalls are genuinely bothered about the runners. With Its Grim Up North that's what you get. Well stocked aid stations, a friendly smile, lovely medal, beautiful locations, and cake plus goodie bag at the end. And once you've done a couple of runs, they remember you!Yes it was tough today, but a few degrees cooler and this would have been up there for run of the year. I'll be back!

      This is my 2nd time I’ve completed this race, even though it is quite hilly in places, it’s still a nice scenic route.There is a half marathon, 10k and a 5k event held at the same location. The half marathon runners and 10k runners set off at the same time. It starts in the Ampleforth College grounds and goes out into woods, and towards a village and back into the college grounds, it’s a mixture of tarmac roads and off road tracks The half marathon runners do the route twice.Today the weather was horrendous, heavy rain all the way round, but despite this the marshalls did an excellent job, giving support, getting soaked like the runners!!Its certainly a run to add to your diary if you like hills.

      At 51 and with the inspiration of my nephew Nick who is more like my little brother I ran this as my first ever official race. Although carrying a groin and hip injury I completed this beautiful scenic run. I have nothing but praise for the event organisation especially the hey smile foundation who did an article on me . Everything about this race was first class.infact I’ve already entered for 2019. 12/10 for me
    • Did the event in 2018

      Ok  - ive done this half a number of years before and its a great course - certainly not flat, but great views over the bridge.Support is brilliant, from start to finish and marshalls are also excellent from start to finish, nice finish area, t shirt and medal and all good.Now the problems and its not addressed every year.Everyone gathers in the starting area prior to race and their is some 4k people, however about 4 loo's between everyone... happened last year and also this year - sort it out - you know how many are coming getting enough loo's. Also its always hot - forget the pointless cups and get some bottles in - the cups dont work.Will be back in 2019..though as overall great race
    • Did the event in 2018

      Well signposted car parks and about a 10 minute walk to the start. We arrived in plenty of time to use the portaloos before it got too busy so no issues there.The start is well organised, though I did find it a little congested as people were waiting with prams and buggies in the start corral, so think that needs addressing next year.  A bit cramped at the start and had to weave in and out but you expect that at most big road races nowadays. On a very hot day there was plenty of water stations, although I just can't drink from cups on the go,so had to stop and take a drink. The route has great variety, well marshalled and well supported too, which made all the difference.  I didn't like having a water station half way up cardiac hill as this made me stop and get a drink on board rather than plod on up the hill.  I'd prefer to see water at the bottom of the hill so it doesn't interfere. I would come again next year, and would bring my own water bottle to avoid the cups, and so I could miss out the cardiac hill water stop.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Vale of York Half Marathon: the fast, flat, PB-loving half marathon in aid of Sue Ryder just got better.

    This year the race will start on a real (but not live!) runway. Our hosts (and friends) at Sherburn Aero Club are closing the airfield to traffic to let you taxi to the start and take off (with clearance from Air Traffic Control) on 13.1 flat miles on scenic closed roads south of York.

    For the novice runner this is a perfect introduction to a longer distance. For the more seasoned racer it is a genuine PB opportunity. And for those training for an autumn marathon it fits perfectly into your training schedule. Follow the event on Twitter and Facebook to get all the news on our fifth year surprises.

    • Did the event in 2018

      My first time doing this event and it was very enjoyable. The route starts from the airfield and then you enter country lanes right up until the last couple of hundred metres, where you come back into the airfield.

      The route was well marshalled and they were encouraging throughout.

      If you are PB hunting then this is definitely a place to go. It flat, fast and easy to plot your way around.

      The medal was nice and the T-shirt is one of my favourite designs.

      The only slight issue was getting off the airfield after the event. It took a long time, but safety had to come first as they couldn't release cars until all the runners had finished. If they could find a better way of doing this in the future it would help the event. I'm not sure if there is more than one way in and out to the airfield to prevent cars and runners coming into contact.

      Overall a good event.

      Vale Of York Half Marathon will always have a special place in my heart as 3years ago, it was the first half marathon I every ran.
      Thing which attracted me to this race was it's super flat course - perfect for those looking to up the distance.

      Race location was at Sherburn Aero Club. A change this year with the race starting on the main runway. This meant strict rules on car parking with for safety reasons, cars not allowed to leave the venue until 12 noon - more on that later.
      There was a good atmosphere in and around race HQ. Baggage deposit/collection was quick, easy and trouble-free. Number collection was a bit slow with quite long queues. Toilets were also busy. This resulted in a 10 minute delay to the start of the race.
      As mentioned earlier, the race was fast, flat and on excellent surfaces.
      Starting on the runway, it looped back on itself before venturing out into the countryside and then back to the finish line at the Areo club. It was a nice, scenic run but nature of the course meant local support was quite sparse.
      There were 3 water stations in total. These contained bottled water but no other nutrition.
      Finishers received an ok medal and a bag containing smart finishers shirt, bar of chocolate and leaflets.
      There was massage options available both before and after the race.
      Post-race atmosphere was very good with many people celebrating fast finish times. This course is a PB chasers dream.
      Leaving the venue was messy with traffic taking an age to get moving. We must have been waiting in the car park well over 45 minutes after the promised 12 noon leaving time. This meant a lot of frustrated people. Once we did get going, the traffic moved quite smoothly.

      In summary -
      I can't recommend Vale of York enough. It is perfect for those stepping up distance and is a chance to smash a great time for the more seasoned runner.
      Race was very good value with a nice medal and super finishers shirt.
      Marshals were absolutely brilliant. They're heroes in my eyes.
      Operation wasn't quite as slick as previous years, with longer queues for some reason. The car parking situation was a bit of a pain but I hope people aren't too critical. The organisers will look at feedback and make next years race even better.
      Thank you for a brilliant day. This is a race I will always look to do.

    • Did the event in 2018

      Vale Of York HM is a great road race. Fast & flat, this really is a PB chaser’s dream.
      Starting & finishing at Sherburn Aero club the route takes runners along smooth tarmac country roads that were closed to traffic.
      There were 3x water stations.
      Finishers received a nice medal & a great quality tech shirt.
      There was a slight hold up in car parks afterwards but it didn’t spoil my day. I’ll be back next year for sure.
      Thanks to organisers & especially the marshalls.
      In summary....
      Highs: A PB chasers dream.
      Lows: Access isn’t easy particularly those using public transport.
      Bottom Line: Fast course, nice medal. A race that I highly recommend.

      No doubt about it, this is a must-do event!

      Couple of minor negatives - firstly, definitely could do with more toilets. This was not a full event, and with spectators aplenty the queues for the loos were challenging. Some portaloos for the event would be recommended. Secondly, a couple of marshals for car parking wouldn't go a miss either.

      The information before the event was great, which including a free parking ticket. The price of the race was spot on, and there was a good atmosphere both at the start but also out on the course. I don't know what the race organisers did to entice the locals out, but it certainly worked! The local support was great on a chilly but dry morning. The scenery was superb and this is without question a PB course. It doesn't have road closures but I didn't find any problem on the course, and at the "busier" points marshals were there halting traffic.

      Finished with a stunning medal, 5 minute PB and lots of clapping from the crowd.

      Enter - you won't regret it!

    • Did the event in 2018

      Worth doing! And free cake!
      Really lovely half marathon! One of the best I’ve done in years, you get to run through some nice little villages, beautiful countryside, all in all a cracking route! Just be prepared fir the relentless uphills lol!
      Only let down was the small amount of toilets at the start which didn’t open up till long after people arrived and then soon stopped flushing, maybe some portaloos would of been a good investment
      Will deffinatly run next year if it returns, plus you get free cake at the end!

    • Did the 8.8 Miles in 2018

      Great organisation and friendly atmosphere as usual from Grim Up North Running! I'm not convinced the course deserved the 5 boot 'grimmer than grim' rating as its a fairly straightforward race - largely flat & easy running on road & canal surfaces. the couple of more trail-y sections by the river and across fields also present no major challenges.Lovely setting at the Abbey start/finish. Lots of cake & a cool medal too!

      Great race with mixed terrain. Lucky we had not had lots of rain this year so pretty dry.
    • Did the 8.8 Miles in 2018

      A Great challenging race, canal part a bit boring but allows to gain some time back. Im always scared of tripping/falling so for me would only race this event in trail shoes. Plenty of water and jelly babies on the 8.8 route.

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      The race is a fabulous run around parts of the harewood estate rarely seen by visitors. The off road half marathon is a good test of stamina and endurance covering forest paths, fields, meadows and steep hills. The information leading up to the race was excellent and organisation on the day was smooth including the car parking, and bag storage. It was a glorious day which led to spectacular views of the house, lake, deer park and even the outside set of Emmerdale! The course was a little shorter than the half marathon which is frustrating when you are trying to pace yourself using your watch. The Volunteers, Marshals, Scouts and Junior Soldiers were excellent. The race doesn't appear on Power of 10 but it is all for good cause and I would highly recommend it!
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Really enjoyed the trails but not the crossing the tufted grassy hills. Route marking could be improved and mile markers were inaccurate. Marshals could be encouraged be be more enthusiastically involved and generally low key atmosphere.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Great run for a great charity, very challenging but scenic course, hilly with about 50% on made tracks and 50% on open pasture. I would recommend
