Charity Hill Climb

It was the KCAC Charity Hill Climb last night. This used to be a three mile uphill road route from the now I think sadly defunct Willow Tree in Riddlesden, but now it's a three mile plus mostly road with a section of very wet and muddy bridleway too route from round the corner from the Busfeild Arms in East Morton. The target at the top of the hill is still the same: Keighley Gate 

The route is many miles too short for me and completely runnable, but enjoyable all the same. We had over sixty people taking part last night including cyclists of all abilities, walkers, joggers and some very decent runners. Nearly everyone adjourned after the climb to the Busfeild where excellent free food was served, real ales were quaffed (it's a thirsty business running uphill) and raffle tickets were sold. Definitely one of my favourite nights of the year (and we won a bottle in the raffle!)
