We’re Baaaaaaaaa’k!!!,

Well after a lot of negotiations and discussions we have finally got some news, it’s good! Natural England and Bradford council have given permission to organise the Baht’at trail marathon in June. This means that unfortunately we have had to miss this year. It does however mean that I can confidently say that the event will be happening again in June 2019!

In fact the Exact date will be the 16th June 2019.

We have even nutritional support from Torq fitness. To make it a reeee’t Yorkshire event we are pleased to welcome Yorkshire tea who’ll be helping us brew up on the event. If a brew of Yorkshire’s finest tea isn’t to your liking our main event supporter offer a post race brew of a different kind! The lovely people at Timothy Taylor’s brewery will be providing every runner with a bottle of their finest ale brewed in Keighley at the glorious Knowle Spring brewery!

The event has a strictly limited number of entries so don’t miss out when they open in January!!

Can I come do the drinks on Ilkley Road again? Katherine Self might consider the half if that’s an option again but I think I’ll stick to cheering everyone on!

We are planning on running the marathon and half marathon again in 2018, due to land access the race will be early September. We are just waiting for dates for the council to confirm bookings before we make an announcement. ... See MoreSee Less

can not wait for the date to come out did the marathon last year hardest thing i have ever done so i will do the half this year and get the full setnot bad when you are pushing 60 next year

If possible Katherine Self and I would love to be involved again. We may consider running the half but if not we'd love to do the drinks station on Ilkley Road again - we had a great time!

Great news Jonathan Carter. Please try to avoid the Great North Run weekend!

Emma Louise Wicks are u doing this again x

It's a shame circumstances have pushed the date into September. Puts you up against the autumn road runs. Having said that the event is distinctive enough to draw a loyal following any time of year. Obviously the sooner you get onto the calendar the better. Good luck Jonathan.

Adam Carney one for you, am ok already done it! 🙈😩

Keep in touch with dates, happy to come and marshal again, had a great time 👍

Jo Owen Samantha Bathgate Sheena Runham Gary Barnes Maurice Hemingway yay!

But you know you want to do it again!!

I echo the thoughts of the others - great event, well organised and fab support from the marshals. My legs are suffering a bit today, but v pleased I did it. Thanks to all involved for organising it.

Really good race and superb organisation. Big respect for those who were mad enough to do two laps!

Great event yesterday,very well organised,thanks to the encouragement from marshalls who did a great job.Certainly know I ve ran a marathon today😀

No rankings? Bit confusing.

What a great and well organised race. Hope it is run again next year. Many thanks to all volunteers and everyone involved in organising. Great job.

Super enjoyed the race, very tough but a lovely route round ilkley and back! A very well done to the marathon runners!!!! I don't know how u did it twice, my legs are wobbly today! Thanks again!

Well done to all those who took part in a dam hard race. Unfortunately couldn't take part as got pneumonia (however knowing the course I'm glad I couldn't do it!😁) but didn't stop me and my daughter from watching. Very well done to all.👏👏👏👏👏👍👍👍👍👍

Great race. Cannot walk today as not used to hills as live in flat fenlands

A batch of homemade scones...

This will be my fourth half marathon at 45 years old after runnning for just 18 months. I'm so proud of what I have achieved so far but a bit apprehensive about the tough course tomorrow 😳

Banana and honey muffins...

Homemade fruit cake 😊

And number 2...

Homemade cake number 1...

I spy Timmy Taylor's

All for purchase along with homemade, authentic Asian curry, rice & pakoras, plenty of fresh tea and coffee located next to registration before and after the event, while stocks last (a little extra incentive to run as quick as you can!). 😊

Good luck Al 😀

This will be HM no. 46 sure it is going to be toughest

Bring it on, just had a nice walk from Ilkley to Addingham to stretch the legs😀😀, wonder what number I'll be??

Excited 😀

You don't fancy heading out with your squidgy to mop up some of that water do you? 😉 Looking forward to Sunday, moisture and all 😀

Did you run the marathon route in that time? :O I'm excited for the half but quite nervous aswell!

Trail shoes???? Can't decide
