Welcome to the Jack Bloor Races and Fund
"I was so pleased to take the win at the Jack Bloor Race last night, it only takes a glance at the previous winner’s names engraved on the trophy to know you are in good company! There is something in this race for everyone, and it perfectly captures the challenging but friendly nature of fell running"
Thanks to everyone who came, the cooler weather didn’t dampen the numbers and we raised lots of money for the Jack Bloor Fund. Thank you to all marshals at the checkpoints (Gritstone Club) and all the helpers (Airienteers and Ilkley Harriers), especially Rob King who organises everything.
Thank you to the sponsors; Outside the Box for the lovely edible junior prizes, Complete Runner for the race numbers and Flying Duck / Wharfedale Brewery for the beer.
Thanks to Dave and Eileen aka Woodentops for all the Senior and Junior photos
Thanks also to Ian Black of Settle Harriers for Junior photos
