2017 RESULTS

The second annual Carleton Sheeplechase was held on Sunday 16 July. Significantly redesigned from the 2016 route, the new fell run and obstacle course fusion covered just over 11km in the fields above Carleton-in-Craven, near Skipton. Starting in the centre of the village, 26 runners climbed over 1100ft to Pinhaw Beacon on Elslack Moor before returning to the village, tackling several challenging obstacles on route. A second shorter route was also created, aimed at fun runners and youngsters. 67 competitors completed a hilly 2.3km circuit also with obstacles. Both routes concluded with an exciting water slide down the hillside!

The event, sponsored by Saltaire Brewery and Landrover Experience North Yorkshire, raised around £370 for Carleton Endowed Primary School. Race director Rob Potter said: “What an outstanding event, run by an amazing committee that never cease to amaze with their endless generosity, selflessness and determination. We’d like to thank the land owners and sponsors for their support, Carleton Community Umbrella and everybody who helped in the run up to the event. Thank you to all the volunteers on the day who smiled and encouraged endlessly. Finally, thank you to the competitors who made the event exactly what we envisaged it to be. If you attended, you will understand the ethos and attitude towards healthy lifestyle and fitness that we at Carleton Sheeplechase are trying to promote.”

Press Release

Last Sunday saw a new event on Carleton’s busy calendar. The Carleton Sheeplechase was dreamt up by obstacle course race enthusiast Rob Potter and his wife Emma, a teacher at the village primary school. They moved to Carleton last year and loved the active and welcoming community and came up with this event to ‘give something back’ and to raise money for the village school. The event was planned with the support of Steve and Debby Richardson, members of Carleton Community Umbrella; Steve is also a parent-governor at the school.

 

Sheeplechase competitors were challenged to run, walk or crawl up the full length of Park Lane in Carleton – 2.2km (1.4 miles) with a climb of almost 200m. Three hay-bale obstacles across the course, named after Yorkshire’s Three Peaks, added to the challenge. 80 competitors took part, with 19 entering the elite race, Tim Chadwick and Helen Wright making it to the top in the fastest male and female times and so earning the titles of King and Queen Sheep – they completed the race in 11:08 and 12:48 minutes respectively, describing the course as a “hilly challenge”, “blooming hard work” and “unforgiving”. A further 32 adults and 30 children took part in the ‘fun’ race, with several runners entering into the spirit of the day by wearing sheep-themed fancy dress. Patrick Valentine and Lorna Meek were the fastest male and female in the fun race, coming in at around 15 minutes, and James Sabin and Tilly Labett the fastest juniors at 15 and 22 minutes. It was a brilliant achievement by all competitors. Every finisher earned a medal and a prize donated by sponsors Saltaire Brewery, whose Sales Director Nick Helliwell competed in the race along with his father.

 

Stalls and entertainment in the centre of the village created a village fete atmosphere and helped to bolster the event’s profits, a total of around £410, all of which will be donated to Carleton Endowed Primary School. Head Teacher, Duggie Speight, said “It was a great event with lots of competitors undertaking the grueling task of running up the steep hill and being chased by wolves. We are hoping to make this an annual event and build on the massive success that has happened this year.”

 

Organisers Rob and Emma said “We are thrilled with Sunday’s success. The ethos of the race was to bring together fun-runners, children and more serious racers and to accommodate all of their needs. There was a real carnival atmosphere and competitors were in great spirits. Watch this space for a bigger and better Sheeplechase next year! A massive thank you to everyone who helped out yesterday - course-builders, marshals, ‘wolves’, cake-bakers, face-painters, first-aiders - we couldn’t have done it without you. We’d also like to thank Carleton Community Umbrella, The Swan Inn, Saltaire Brewery, and Skipton & Craven Action for Disability for their invaluable support in staging this event.”
