Temple Newsam Top Trumps – Update

13 runners have now completed the full set of Temple Newsam Hills and 9 runners have also completed an “all in one” run.

Correction – Daniel Gaunt claims the honour of being the first STAC to complete the full round of STAC Segments in numerical order  (21/07 – 02:43:53 – 23.9km) with Ian Maudsley a close second completing the circuit two days later (23/07 – 01:59:49 – 22.9km). Cracking running guys!!!

STAC Segment King and Queens lists have now been added – King of STAC Segments is John Robson with 5 followed by Terrry Midgley (4) and Daniel Grant (3). Queen of the Segments is Lindsey Hill-Reynolds with 5 followed by Ruth Muir and Jane Kemshall with 3 each.

To celebrate our love for Fell ,Trail and Hill Climbs – 15 separate Hill Segments have been chosen within the confines of Temple Newsam Estate.

These have been logged as STRAVA segments – apologies to the non STRAVA users out there (however you can manually run them if you like)

The aim is for you to complete all 15 and then your times will be automatically logged in the Strava Leaderboards.  All climbs have been categorised based on their average gradient –  Easy <5%, Medium 5-8% or Hard 8+%

All segments start with the letters SH and have a definite start and end point (see guides in the downloads section for details) and using these should mean that your segments are logged.

A “collect them all” chart has been made for you to record your progress

A Completers Certificate is also available for you to print out once you have completed the challenge (big thanks to Malcolm Lavery for creating this).

There is also a seperate “all in one” challenge for you to attempt  – the aim is to complete them as one run with the clock starting from the start of the first segment and stopping at the end of the last (in any order you like). A leaderboard of “all in one” times is shown below. We also will rank your runs by overall distance and climb efficiency.

Please be aware that farmers fields are “out of bounds” unless there is a footpath or bridleway across them.

Old runs – i.e. before the “go live” day of Hill Top Trumps will not count – expect for the purposes of segment leaderboards as Strava doesn’t allow you to set a from date.  (22/06/17)
