Bloodaxe Challenge 2019

Race date Sunday 17 February 2019

This was the second running of the Bloodaxe Challenge after a sellout first year

The race takes place before the Jorvik Viking Festival gets in to full swing and has been named after the notorious Viking King, Eric Bloodaxe.

The event is held at York Sports Village on their 1km cycle circuit. This is a 2 hour, chip timed event so you can turn up and run as many or as few laps as you wish within the 2 hour limit.

It’s your challenge, your race, you decide the distance!

All runners, no matter how fast or how far they have run, receive the same bespoke medal and a goody bag.

There are homemade cakes for all runners at the end of the race.

Michael Smith of Pocklington completed the most laps, 30, in a time of 2:02:45. His fellow club runner Katie Wise led the ladies with 28 laps in 2:05:16. Sarah Storey was the lone Strider, 22 laps in 2:04:33 which earned her 52nd place.
