Out in the pouring rain today I was agreeing with a.n.other that the forum is under-used, but I've resolved to post something rather than moan.
As one of the final group of Woldsman finishers I'd like to echo the earlier congratulations on an excellent event, a good route in lovely countryside and very well organised. Four completions for me now and no sign of boredom setting in - well done to all who put in the hard work for our enjoyment!

Follow the link on the home page to "challenge walks", then follow a second link, found just above the photograph.

Thanks once again to East Yorkshire for organising another wonderful event, aided by perfect walking weather!

Will the results be coming out by e-mail this year?

Graham,
As Ian indicates in his post, Woldsman route descriptions are usually distributed to entrants by email,only a week or so before the Event. Some small sections cross private land with access negotiated for the day. Hence, walking out the entire route before the Event is discouraged. I can supply a draft copy now, but remember some minor details may change.
Please contact me by email paul@tremere.karoo.co.uk.

Graham,

I do not know if you can get the route before you enter, but I've a list of checkpoints if that helps.

1, 6.75 Danes Graves 022634 D

2, 13,5 Sledmere Village Hall 936648 H

3, 20.5 Wharram Percy 866644 D

4, 25 Thixendale Village Hall 842611 M

5, 31.5 Givendale Scout Hut 818538 H

6, 36.5 Huggate Wold 865547 D

7, 42 Wetwang Methodist Hall 932591 H

8, 46.5 Garton Crossroads 980577 D

D = drinks, H = hot drinks and snacks, M = drinks, meal.


If you look at my last post below and look at the photo's, because how Geograph is laid out using OS maps you should easy work out the route from my photo's. Every one taken on Sunday 27th Feb, bar 4 taken to the south of Thixendale are of the route. Today I will post more photo's to make it even easier for you to work out the first 25 miles. Been told I'm doing the next 18 miles, week after next so you will be able see the next set of photo's in 2 weeks.

ian.

See you then Paul. The Gaffer likes Scarborough at that time of year and I just hope the road works on the A1 are fixed by then.
