Yorkshire Combined Event Championships with Combined Event Open Medal Meeting and Yorkshire Race Walk Championships
Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August 2013, Beckett Park Athletics Stadium, Leeds
Please find attached Combined Events and Race Walking Prospectus 2013 Yorkshire Combined Events Championships and Yorkshire Race Walking Championships. If this event isn’t of interest to you personally, I would be really grateful if you could forward it to others who might be interested. Both of these events disappeared from the calendar in the past and were reinstated last year, they proved to be very popular and the standard of competition was excellent , so it would be great if they were well supported again this year.

The Long Distance Walkers Association recently hosted their annual 100 mile challenge walk in May 2013, also known as the CamelTeign Ivor’s Dream 100. The event was named in honour of the death of Ivor Kingwell, a Scout leader and the designer of the course It is a scenic Coast to Coast route across the counties of Cornwall and Devon. It takes in breath-taking scenery whilst traversing both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor, a true 100 miler!
I am pleased to say that I completed the event in 31hr 09 minutes, spurred on largely by stubbornness, raising funds for my favourite charity, WaterAid, and knowing that bailing was not an option! DG would never live it down! Memories of the event that will stay with me include a rising but blood red full moon in Baskerville country, switching off my head torch whilst led by moonlight (and a shooting star!) plenty of tin mine chimneys silhouetted against a clear sky line, and popping plenty of strawberry flavoured energy gels!
Whilst the event may be over, I am continuing to collect funds on behalf of WaterAid, on my Justgiving web page. To make a donation, simply click on the link below: It is simple, fast and totally secure!
WaterAid carry-out fresh water and sanitation projects across countries that are less fortunate in acquiring such infrastructure. With your generous donation, funds can be distributed in a number of ways:
I thank you in advance for your generosity. If you hear someone say 100 milers are easy, don’t believe them. The preparation can be just as if not harder than the event itself!
This event was due take place on Tuesday 18 June. It has had to be postponed until 2 July.
Meet at Pickburn Arms at 6pm for 6.30pm start.
