Participants get ready for Burley Moor Fun Run
11:53am Friday 9th November 2012 in Local news
The public will dust off their running shoes on Saturday to take part in what organisers claim is the North’s greatest run.
The third Burley-in-Wharfedale Moor Fun Run will put a spring in the step of participants this weekend.
The event will see runners and joggers of all ages and abilities taking part.
The run will start at Scalebor Park Pavilion at 10am, and will venture onto Burley moor. It will be an off-road course of about 11km, and has a main ascent of 800ft. The course uses well-trodden paths and tracks, but by the nature of the moorland, some sections are steep and uneven.
Participants are reminded that they are responsible for their own safety and enter at their own risk. Stewards will be on the course to mark the route and the one road crossing will be policed.
Anyone wanting to volunteer as a steward would be very welcome. Contact Chris Hill via firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Organisers would like to thank Phil McPhail accountants, of Burley-in-Wharfedale, for sponsoring the Red Cross first aid team, and Triangle Running, of Horsforth, for its support.
All proceeds from this year’s run will go towards the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford in memory of Gill Hill, who died earlier this year. Gill, along with her husband Chris and daughter Kathryn, was a major organiser of the first two moor runs.
