The Three Peaks Race traverses the famous Yorkshire Dales mountains of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside and is one of the oldest fell races in Britain. First run in 1954, the race covers 37.4 kilometres with 1608 metres of ascent and descent over the most rugged and spectacular countryside in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, taking competitors to a height of 723 metres above sea level. James Purves represented Gala Harriers in this years race with a typically strong performance on a day of rain, hailstones and strong winds, completing the course in 4:56:45 for 12th place in the M60 category. Kudos to James for a great run.
