Yorkshire 3 peaks race report

Categories: Mountain Running News

Just as Lou Beetlestone was starting her fantastic Paddy Buckley round, five Eryri Harriers were starting the prestigious 24 mile Yorkshire 3 peaks race along with 780 other runners. It’s tough underfoot with limestone slabs, some longish flat sections and steep climbs, all made up for with near-perfect weather and fantastic race atmosphere!

Well done all – Eryri was led home by Matthew Fortes in 36th overall (3h25m, 5th V40) followed by Richard Roberts in 113th (3h47m), Sarah Harley (4h7m, 22nd female), Paul Hodges (4h39m, 449th) and Ali Thomas (4h47m, 67th female).

Apologies didn’t get any pics but here’s one at the end before it got too chilly, also with Sian and Dylan from Hebog!
