On behalf of the race organising team, I would like to openly welcome entrants and supporters to the annual Burton Leonard 10K and 3K junior races.
We are delighted that the 2018 event is proudly sponsored again by the refreshing local business, Grass Roots of Harrogate.
Owner Shaun Goodman, seen (left) with Race Director Simon Cave said “We enjoyed our inaugural sponsorship in 2017 of what is a great race and fun day in the village. We look forward to working with Simon and his team to produce another high quality event next year – and I might even run in it again.”
Grassroots is now open 7 days for splendid food, refreshments and interesting gifts. They look forward to seeing you soon. www.grassrootsharrogate.co.uk
Both race routes sample the natural rural terrain of the pretty landscape which surrounds our picturesque village. For 33 years, the event has famously attracted a complimentary mix of club runners and leisure runners from across the region. We organise our race plan with a culture of constant review and continuous improvement. Our goals are simple; To deliver an excellent race experience together with the safety of competitors, officials and spectators. Recent tweaks over the last few years have produced well organised and suitably challenging courses. The start and finish area is located within the Burton Leonard Primary School grounds - allowing a great location for our finishing arch and plenty of space for warming up and spectators.
The 10K is proudly supported by our famously 'substantial' and suitably challenging 3km fun run. The 3K course (redesigned in 2016) is an excellent opportunity for competitive under-15 junior runners to compete over a challenging cross-country course. The event is also open to all ages, families and supporters to enjoy an undulating rural dash.
All proceeds support our local school and local village events including the annual Burton Leonard Feast and sports day. A huge and appreciative thank you to our sponsors.
We very much anticipate your race-entry and look forward to seeing you on the start line on Sunday 15th July 2018.
