Pathfinder Trail Race

This might be of interest to some people



Please let me introduce myself. My name is Paul McGee and I am the group scout leader for the 25th Ormesby Pathfinder Scout Group as well as a running enthusiast.


As a scout group we have organised the Pathfinder 25 Challenge Hike and Trail Marathon. This comprises of a circular route around the picturesque North Yorkshire Moors from the event HQ at Ravengill Scout Campsite – Commondale. Recently we have also introduced a 15 mile course which has become quite popular..


This is the 32nd year we have ran this event but unfortunately over the last few years interest has started to diminish. I have concluded that this may be due to  the fact we have targeted hill walkers by advertising through the likes of the LDWA. I am now seeking to promote our event to the running community.


The event takes place on the 8th October and costs £12.50 – this includes


·         a fully marshaled course

·         5 liquid refreshment checkpoints

·         2 food checkpoints

·         2 course meal afterwards.

·         A certificate of completion

·         Trophies are also awarded to the fastest male and female walkers and runners for both courses.


I would really appreciate it if you could make your members aware of our event. We have received a lot of very positive feedback after recent events and I feel we have just been advertising in the wrong places. If you can think of anywhere suitable to raise awareness I would really welcome your comments.


Thank you for taking the time to read this a I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
