Three at the Upper Eden Mountain Yomp

Race Reports

We gad three of our runners in action today at the Upper Eden Mountain Yomp. The Full Yomp Race (38k, 1300 metre height gain) starts with a 11am mass start at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School and heads South out of town and past Wharton Hall, continuing over Wild Boar Fell and on to Swarth Fell before swinging off the tops down to Aisgill Moor.

Climbing back from the valley via Hell Gill onto Mallerstang Edge the route passes over High Seat and High Pike and drops down to the Swaledale road near the top of Tailbridge Hill. The final stage is the ascent to the Nine Standards, and then down to Kirkby Stephen. Mike King was first back in 12th place, Peter Foulds 32nd and Ian Morris 45th. Great work gentleman.
