Event Description

Come and join us for the 8th trail race in memory of Ben Campbell!!

NOW KNOWN AS - "THE HOODED HORSE 10K"

This race has been organised as a non-profit charity event, celebrating the life of Ben Campbell and supporting the UK Sepsis Trust who are committed to increasing public awareness and supporting those affected by Sepsis.

Ben Campbell was a friend of ours, who grew up in Thirsk, and tragically died at the age of 36 in Jan 2015, very unexpectedly, from pneumococcal pneumonia.

Ben loved a challenge and it is for this reason that this idyllic location has been chosen. Not only does it encompass the true beauty of the North Yorkshire countryside but the terrain itself is a challenge to run on, we are sure you will truly enjoy it.

The course is fully way marked and marshalled, both hilly and muddy in places with breath-taking scenery.

It presents itself to both seasoned and beginner runners aged 18 years or over.

There are a limited number of 200 entries available.

Medals will be awarded for the first 3 Males and first 3 Females, as well as a trophy for the out-right winner of the race.

START & FINISH

The White Horse Car Park, North York Moors National Park, Low Town Bank Road, York, North Yorkshire,

YO61 4AN

Parking is available for a small fee at the Visitor Centre (which is a good walk/jog to the start– you can use this as your warm up), and also in the Car Park opposite the top of the White Horse steps.

The Forestry Commission ask that competitors DO NOT park in the Car Park at the bottom of the White Horse steps.

This is a small event, so the atmosphere is incredibly friendly, and everyone is extremely supportive. We keep costs low so that as much money as possible goes to the charity.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be invited to join us on some route recces which give you chance to suss out the area and prepare yourself for race day.
