Yorkshire Water Run for WaterAid


Event information

The Yorkshire Water Run will return in 2021. Stay tuned for more information!

Located in the Washburn Valley on the southern side of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the scenic Swinsty Reservoir is a popular site for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The accessibility-friendly paths provide a great basis for a running route, where the relatively flat nature of the reservoir circuit lends its self nicely to a PB-challenging pace!  

All money raised from the event helps WaterAid bring clean water to 130,000 people in Ethiopia. Yorkshire Water has committed to raising £1 million for projects in Ethiopia over five years – all funds and sponsorship raised from this event go towards achieving this target.

Please include the following information when sending in your sponsorship: your name, what the sponsorship is for, and a sponsor form with names/addresses of the sponsors and whether they would like to apply Gift Aid.

We strongly recommend that you send your sponsorship via recorded delivery so that you can track and hopefully retrieve your envelope if it goes missing.
