Well, Race 1 has finally arrived and as current Champions, Baildon Runners, are delighted to host the first race on Sunday.17th November.
The race HQ is from Baildon Rugby Club, Jenny Lane, Baildon BD17 6SH.
With the increase in the number of runners we ask that you please, please please car share. There is limited residential parking near the Rugby club as well as couple of small car parks at the club. Please do not block any driveways.
There is also a small car park at the Golf Club, further residential parking in the area behind and another small car park on the right, past the cattle grid. Please see attached map.
The Rugby clubhouse will be open early for tea/coffee and number collection from your Club Rep. Please arrive in good time.
The race starts at 10.30am and is the same as last year on the beautiful Baildon Moor, near Baildon Golf Club which is a 5 minute jog from the Rugby Club HQ.

We have slightly amended the start which will hopefully ease the congestion of last year and will run up the side of the 18th Golf fairway. There is a competition on at the time of the race although we anticipate golfers will not have reached the 18th by 10.30am.
They will however be using the nearby 1st tee and we ask that you respect our good friends at the Golf Club doing their chosen sport and keep away from that area.
There are limited changing facilities (usually for 30 rugby players!) with post race drinks and food in the Rugby clubhouse. Please remove/change your muddy running shoes. There will also be a raffle (we welcome any donations) and the race results announcements.
Good luck to you all and we hope you will again enjoy the Baildon hospitality and our iconic moorland course.
