Top of the Wolds 10k Challenge 2019!
Yorkshire Wolds Runners would like to present “The Top of the Wolds 10K Challenge” a multi terrain race ,run on the first Sunday in June, from the East Yorkshire village of Warter, close to Pocklington.
We have used the nearby Yorkshire Wolds Way, National Trail as the inspiration for this race route. Using the Nunburnholme Wold landscape, as a stunning backdrop, to this undulating 10K multi terrain race.
The rural setting makes this a great event whether it’s your first time or you are a seasoned runner. Run on closed roads, with chip timing, good marshalling, water station and kilometre markers along the route, you will have everything you need to have a great running experience.
The Top of the Wolds 10k Challenge is a scenic, rural race around Nunburnholme Wold in East Yorkshire.
Starting from the attractive Village of Warter, which is best noted for its much photographed row of thatched cottages, thatch being a most unusual roof covering on the Wolds.
The race route heads out along a scenic backwater lane, towards the village of Nunburnholme, which itself is part of the Yorkshire Wolds Way.
Take a left turn to climb Nunburnholme Hill, and enjoy the fruits of your labour at the summit, with the spectacular and far-reaching views.
Have a well-earned drink at the half way stage, before leaving the road and hitting the Bridleway trail, descending through the Woodland section.
Finally, as you emerge into the sunlight (it’s June, fingers crossed) take a right turn and return to Warter village and the finish line.
