On Saturday we had a small number of runners taking on the 39th Swaledale marathon. Despite being called a marathon it’s actually only 23.2 miles but with an ascent of over 4000 feet it will feel more than your standard marathon.
Dave McKenna finished in an excellent 16th place in 3hrs 44, Val Clarke 91st in 4hrs 30, Mark Milner 129th in 4hrs 57 and Dave Riches 208th in 5hrs 44. Excellent efforts by all four of you.
Well done, a very tough race for all competitors especially on a warm day.
