Running & Walking
Over the beautiful
North York Moors
Let us help you...
SilverBackTrails came into being in the middle of 2020 with one aim to get people out running and walking over the North Yorkshire Moors and beyond. we started off with our Wednesday Wanders, meeting at a different location for a run of about 6 miles. As much as the running Wednesdays are about the history of the moors, and "runsploring" all its nooks and crannies. And of course, having a natter and a brew of some sort at the end...
Over two years on we are still wandering and finding new stuff to look at.
As well as Wandering we decided we wanted to build on this with some no-nonsense back-to-basic events and training.
Having completed many events of various distances from 10k to 450 miles, including UTMB, The Tunnel, HM 200 and the inaugural National 3 Peaks Ultra I wanted to get back to basics and let people enjoy their running with easy-to-enter events without all the bells and whistles... Hopefully, this is being achieved with our Revenge Series and Goathland V Trigs.
We also offer basic map sessions that should appeal to complete beginners and those who have forgotten previous learning.
New for this year, we will be providing personal mentoring and coaching for trail runners and ultra-distance runners.
If you live within easy reach of the North Yorkshire Moors then this may be for you.
Get in touch with us via the website to have a no-obligation discussion about your training needs and running aspirations.
From beginners to leathery campaigners and anyone else in between...
Hills, hard work and sweat are guaranteed...
One of the checkpoints on the Goathland V Trigs Ultra Challenge
A quick bottle refill and snack grab before heading across the moor to the next one...
This year the Goathland V Trigs Ultra challenge took place on Saturday the 8th of April.
Clear skies and a light breeze greeted competitors, after a night of heavy rain. The course was slightly longer at 37 miles and there was a surprise checkpoint that participants only found out about whilst out on the ground. They also had to bring an item back from this bonus checkpoint, mind you they did get a little chocolate egg there as a little pick-me-up. In the picture above is Pete " Samosa" Goodwin, dishing out the goodies in the shades, with front runners Stephen Kirk, Anthony Gerundini, Neil Ridsdale, Matt Machouki and Ed Taylor Garrett.
In the picture below Louise Venables triumphntly reaching the finish at Goathland Village Hall.
