Organised by the 15th Airedale Scout Group, the Rombalds Stride Winter Challenge starts and finishes at St. Oswald’s Junior School in Guiseley. The route takes in some of Yorkshire’s finest scenery, going up the Airedale Valley, over Rombalds Moor to Ilkley and across Otley Chevin. With over 2900ft of climbing the 23 mile route had to be completed within a 10 hour time limit and with checkpoints closing on a 2mph walking speed.
Well done to Carl Heron for taking on the challenge, Carl finished in an incredible 3:30:27 (starva).
Well done Carl.
