Exclusive It's Grim up North Running Event

A New exciting event for ‘Its Grim Up North Running’, Four wonderful days of marathon running around the Fewston and Swinsty Reservoir.

The perimeter of Fewston is one of the best of all the reservoirs in the Leeds and Harrogate Area. the views of the immediate countryside are virtually unobstructed, in contrast the sheltered path of the neighbouring Swinsty is enclosed by walls and will provide a welcome break from the elements. The combination of these trails will be sure to provide four exhilarating days of marathon running.

Those building up their stamina may join us for the full four days, others may choose to come and run just one marathon (or two), either way we will ensure you are looked after by the ‘Its Grim Up North Running Team’.

Glorious Gargrave - Leeds Liverpool Canal 2018

That Moses and Samson were found in the dark

Silent water slips away to sea,
Kissed by trout and dappled with evening light.
The gilded sun melts in purple shadows
Over the blue powdered hills.

There are days here.
Days moving round
The oakleaf stone,
The delta, The forgotten ford...
