Punk Panther Races are new in the calendar for 2017. There will be a series of 6 Ultra Marathons, each will have trophies for First Male, Female and Veteran Male and Female over 50. Points given each race will count towards an annual trophy in each category. Punk Panther Races all start in Otley, West Yorkshire and finish in Pool-in-Wharfedale, West Yorkshire, with free return transport to the event car park. They are a minimum of 50K and are run over a variety of challenging courses in West and North Yorkshire visiting stunning scenery including Ilkley Moor, The Chevin and the many reservoirs and beauty spots the area has to offer.
