ROUTE AND MAPS
Use postcode LS17 9LG for Satnav
Click for Map My Run route map of the original 10 mile route
Due to maintenance work, the dam on Eccup Reservoir is closed from May 2014 to May 2015.
So we are taking a shortcut from the 4 mile marker to the 7 mile marker. This happens to be exactly 1 mile, so, for 2014 only, we are having a "Harewood 8"

LATE ENTRIES AND ON-THE-DAY INFORMATION

  • We have plenty of capacity - all late entries will be accepted on the day.
  • But to save money and save a possibly long queue on the day, please enter in advance if possible.
  • Postal entries should arrive with us by Wednesday 15 October. If they arrive after 15 October we will keep your number for "collect on day".
  • We will close online entries 6pm on Friday 17 October. Race numbers should be picked up from the "collect on day" queue.
  • The "collect on day" queue will be shorter than the "enter on day" queue.
  • The "collect on day" will be arranged in alphabetical order of surname.
  • If you are unable to run we can transfer your number to someone else for an admin charge of £2 if received by email before 6pm Friday 17 October or £3 on the day
  • Anyone found to be running in the race in another person's number will be disqualified - you are cheating our charities who receive ALL of the race profits
  • We do not allow competitors to run wearing MP3 players or similar

On the day:
  • Late entries will be taken in the Village Hall.
  • But for parking, please turn at the traffic lights at Harewood and go under the arch leading to Harewood House (you don't have to pay Harewood admission fees).
  • For full travelling instructions see the competitor information.
  • (Use postcode LS17 9LG for Satnav).
  • We suggest you arrive AT LEAST 30 minutes before the start of your race.
  • If you are going to run the 5 or 8 mile, why not come a little earlier and cheer on the competitors in the 2 mile?!
  • Please email harewood@valleystriders.org.uk if any questions!

These races, promoted by Valley Striders, are in support of Lineham Farm Children's Centre, Eccup, near Leeds AND, for 2009 onwards, the profits are shared with Yorkshire Air Ambulance
In 2008, one of our runners suffered a heart attack near to the 8 mile point which was inaccessible to the St John Ambulance 4 by 4. They called out the Yorks Air Ambulance helicopter who took him to Harrogate Hospital, where he was in intensive care for several days. We are glad to report that he made a full recovery and he ran our 2 mile race in 2009. For this reason, this year we have decided again to donate half our race profits to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Click for course profile from Dave Gillian. Dave emailed after the race in 2009 "I've downloaded the data from my polar and I thought you might be interested in the altitude graph it produced for possible inclusion on the website. .Of course the profile is skewed by my speed (time on the x-axis) rather than distance but the mile markers give you an idea. I'm also sure actual altitude isn't right but the diffference in altitude should be accurate enough!"

RACE HISTORY & ARCHIVES

10 mile history

5 mile history

2 mile history

The first races, organised by St Leonard's Hospice and assisted by Valley Striders, were held in 1999 on the Harewood Hill Climb site. There was a 10k mixed terrain race and a 2 mile fun run.

For 2000, the races moved to the Harewood Estate. There was a 10 mile Trail Race around the Harewood Estate and Eccup Reservoir and a 2 mile Junior Race & Fun Run (the Harewood Hop). This was repeated in Autumn 2001 through to 2004, culminating in a record number of finishers in both races (609 in 10 mile, 179 in 2 miles, a total of 788). Over £12,500 was raised for St Leonard's Hospice over the 6 years - thank you!

In 2005 we had a record number of finishers (242) in the 2 mile, the total for 2 races was 781. In 2006 the 2 mile increased to 249, the total for 2 races was again 781. In 2007 the numbers were 469 and 175, a total of 644.

For these last three years, the recipient of our fundraising has been Lineham Farm Children's Centre at Eccup. The route of the Trail Race goes within 1 mile of Lineham Farm. The 3 years have raised over £10,750 for Lineham Farm. Thank you to Harewood Estate, Yorkshire Water, Up & Running and Duffield Printers for your support. And thank you to all you runners!

We welcome new and returning runners to our race in 2008, which will again benefit Lineham Farm.

  • Hope you all had a good race today
  • Congratulations to Andrew Pearson and Karen Pickles, winners in the 10 mile race
  • Congratulations to all the junior winners, in particular Charmaine Porter who broke the girls record, Jake Worton first boy, and to Seb Christie, Dominic Mather-Hunter and Amy Pearce who set age-group records.
  • Thanks to the brilliant weather, over 300 of you turned up and entered on the day, which was a nightmare for our computer inputters but very profitable for our charities.
  • We hope to have raised nearly £4,000 to be shared between Lineham Farm and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
  • Good to see Tony Fell running the 2 mile, so with the 8 miles last year before he "fell", he's now done 10!
  • You may have noticed the BARR scrutineer at the race - any feedback about the race would be appreciated - please email info@valleystriders.org.uk
  • Apologies, we ran out of medals in the 2 mile - we'll post them on to you at the weekend.
  • Certificates will be sent out in the next 2 weeks to all juniors and anyone raising £10 or more.
  • These races, promoted by Valley Striders, are in support of Lineham Farm Children's Centre, Eccup, near Leeds AND, for 2009, the profits will be shared with Yorkshire Air Ambulance
    Last year, one of our runners suffered a heart attack near to the 8 mile point which was inaccessible to the St John Ambulance 4 by 4. They called out the Yorks Air Ambulance helicopter who took him to Harrogate Hospital, where he was in intensive care for several days. We are glad to hear that he made a full recovery and he hopes to be back with our races in 2009, although he's not decided as yet whether to run the 10 mile or 2 mile race. For this reason, this year we have decided to donate half our race profits to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

    Apologies to those of you in the 10 mile for the queues for the gates - this is the first time the gates have not been opened - we will ensure this does not happen next year. Apologies to those of you coming late to the refreshments - we ran out of milk - we will ensure this does not happen next year. We hope the injured runners have all recovered and are back to full training now. Thank you to everyone who entered - we hope you all enjoyed the race and will come back next year (but don't tell too many friends about it). If you have any comments about the race please email them to us. If you click this link the email address will appear. And finally, to any Valley Striders and St Leonard's Hospice volunteers reading this, THANK YOU! Bob
