The incline, coming in the middle of the race, is just under a mile long with and ascent of 200 feet and it's a killer, and with rough moorland to follow, a very testing race.

In Race 6 of the Dave Parry Summer Series, Thirsk and Sowerby once again had a good turnout, many of whom came away with prizes at the end.
