Fred Bagley (ENG)
Notes: 1954 was the inaugural year.  The 2001 race was cancelled due to an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease.  The course traverses three peaks on trails with sections that are open (no trail).  In 1975, the start/finish were moved from Chapel le Dale (Hill Inn) to Horton in Ribblesdale, adding about two kilometers.  The route has been altered for various reasons, but primarily to avoid parts of the route that were becoming badly eroded and to keep clear of farming land.  The present distance is about 37 km but times are estimated as 15-20 minutes slower than in the earliest years, suggesting that the distance originally was on the order of 32 km.  Changes since 1996 have been relatively minor and event records are considered from 1996.  In 1981, a severe blizzard struck the area on the day before the race was due to take place and all access roads became impassable.  On the hillsides the snow drifts were up to 20 feet deep and so the race was rescheduled for October 11th.
