Ilkley Harriers Trail Race

The Ilkley Harriers Trail Race made its inaugural appearance on the race calendar in 2008. The 6.9 mile out-and-back route takes in tracks through woodland, fields and moors, interspersed with some short road sections. Virtually all of the climb is on the way out, but runners will be reinvigorated by the views over the Wharfe Valley and across to Ilkley Moor when they hit the moorland on the top, for a very fast second half of the race.
