David Goodyear continues to represent our great club in races here, there and everywhere. Today he steps up to the start line, clad in blue and white to take on yet another half marathon.The Wharfedale Trail half marathon is a 13.2 mile trail race flagged throughout the entire course. It affords participants and their families the opportunity to enjoy a day out in some of Wharfedale’s finest scenery with over 2000 feet of ascents. The route follows well established footpaths and trails including the Dalesway and Mastiles Lane (a Roman marching road in Kilnsey which was later used as an important route for the Cistercian monks leading sheep from Fountains Abbey to summer pastures in higher ground) For those with time to take in the fabulous scenery, the views from Boss moor, Mastiles and Scott Gate are quite breathtaking.There were over £900 in Prizes including course record £200 female and £300 male, plus a Wharfedale Trail Half Marathon “Neck Buff” and a chance to win some fantastic Spot Prizes. This event is organised to raise funds on behalf of Wharfedale RUFC a community rugby club and a member of the RFU National League 2 North and is used to improve facilities for both rugby and non-rugby users of the Clubhouse. David finished in fine style posting a time of 2:35:12 Brilliant running, well done!
