Gribdale Gallop 2017
The next race in the Dave Parry Summer Fell Race Series is Gribdale Gallop on Wednesday 16th August. Entry is £5 on the day only and the fun begins at 7.15 pm. The start/finish/registration is at Gribdale Car Park which is just a drive up hill from Great Ayton, North Yorkshire (Grid Ref NZ59311). This years course is slightly different to the established course that has been used for the past 20 years as the race has been unable to get access to the Forestry Commision Land. The new route is about 9km which will be about 2km shorter than the established route and it will also have a bit less ascent. So, make sure you have a good look at the route map.

The course is mainly hard packed tracks underfoot so trails shoes will be ideal for this course.
