Settle Saunter (13)
The Saunter is an annual walking/running event along footpaths and bridleways taking entrants into the Yorkshire Dales to see some picturesque rural villages and hamlets and swathes of intoxicating countryside. It is organised and run by the Rotary Club of Settle with help from members of the local community. There are checkpoints with light refreshments along the way and a hot savoury meal is provided at the end. Badges and certificates upon completion are all included in the entry fee. Showers and free car parking are provided.
There are actually three routes on offer (10km, 13 and 23 miles) to accommodate a wide range of abilities. The longer route is a bit of a "toughie" as it is undulating and incorporates Ingleborough, one of the three peaks. The distances in 2014 are slightly longer than in previous years because of a change of venue and an alteration in the outward route between Settle and the hamlet of Feizor.
