2016 Race Sponsorship

  • by

Organisers of the Jack Bloor Races are delighted to announce that the Flying Duck Pub in Ilkley is to sponsor our 2016 Senior Race.

The Flying Duck is a traditional Yorkshire Dales real ale and fine wine bar situated close to the centre of Ilkley. Located in one of Ilkley’s oldest premises the atmospheric pub can be found on Church Street a short distance west of the central A65 traffic lights. This Grade II listed building is also home to the new Wharfedale Brewery which supplies pubs the length of the dale.

More details available at:

A traditional gritty fell race, a craft microbrewery and a friendly local pub. What more could you want for a great evening?!

We also appreciate continued support from two other local businesses.
