Some Race History

This race first started in 1984, since then, there were 2 years that the race wasn't run. In 2001, most of our courses were out of bounds because of restrictions imposed by the Foot and Mouth Disease restrictions. The 2007 event was cancelled because of the infamous Hull Floods, which hit us the day before the event. Although some people who turned up suggested the course was passable (with care), the main problem was that many roads in the Hull and surrounding area were still impassable, and many were in shock because of water damage to their homes (including the Event Organiser at the time, Dave Brooke)
