Looking ahead to 2015!

This news item was posted on September 23, 2014

What a year! Since taking over Gr8events in October 2013, there have been many ups and downs, some sleepless nights, even tears on occasions but overall a fantastic year, with many new friends made along the way!

2014 saw five Gr8events take place, including the new Reeth Trail 20k, in which 128 runners took on the extremely hilly course above Reeth (it was a windy day), 3 open water swims (2 of which were VERY windy days), and a brand new sprint triathlon and aquacycle course (also a very windy day!).

Looking forward to 2015, the first event on the calender will be the Reeth Trail 20k, the original Aquacycle course will make a re-appearance in May, for those of you who requested a longer event; the Sprint Triathlon and shorter Aquacycle will take place in August; and three open water swims will form a series, with prizes for overall winner.

There are a few other ideas for events currently in the planning. Wensleydale may feature… which can only mean one thing… Semer Water!
