Welcome to The Golden Fleece Circuit
COVID 19 Statement.
We have been closely monitoring the current Covid-19 situation with a view to doing everything we can to make the race still happen for you with safety as always being our top priority. We have considered you as runners, the many volunteers that we need to host the event, the spectators and local community.
The current escalating situation, and the position we are in now, is something we hadn’t predicted six months ago. We’ve had some great open conversations with our supporters, volunteers and previous entrants, who have been extremely supportive throughout; helping us steer and make decisions around our event.
The movement of areas into and out of the new tier system, would have led to entrants not being able to cross borders-the logistics of this element and the communication associated with this presents a huge challenge and is just not feasible for us to be able to continue with events safely. As we rely fully on the support and kindness of the village residents, we feel it is inappropriate to bring 500 people into this close-knit village in one day right now. Sadly, as a result the live race in its current format will not take place as planned.
We will be doing a virtual event, see details in Latest News.
This event has been created by South Cave Scout Group in memory of Bob Gunby. Bob was A Scouter, A Walker, A Friend, A husband, A Dad; he was for many years chairman and an active member at South Cave Scouts. He was a keen walker and outdoor person and was at his best in the outdoors passing on his scouting knowledge of everything from walking/hiking to corn beef hash. Bob sadly passed away at the end of 2010. The members at South Cave Scouts wanted to remember Bob, and what better way than running a challenge walk to raise money for Scouts in his memory. The walk will start and finish at South Cave and will take in the Wolds and Valleys of the southern end of the East Yorkshire Wolds. There are 2 route options for the event, the long route being 27.5 miles and the shorter route 15 miles.
