ONE FOOT IN THE GARGRAVE
CHALLENGE EVENT

We are extremely disappointed to report that our annual One Foot in the Gargrave event (scheduled for 12 September 2020) will sadly not now be taking place.
This decision has been made in light of Government guidelines and also to safeguard the health and well being of all our entrants and marshals, together with all the residents and local community of Gargrave.

However.... we are planning to run the event next year - proposed date being Saturday 11 September 2021.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you all very soon.
