Will Ramsbotham Badger Stone fell relays

The Badger Stone Relays have been run annually on Ilkley Moor since 1992. In 1994 they were renamed the Will Ramsbotham Badger Stone Relays after the young athlete Will Ramsbotham (see the October 1993 Fellrunner article). In 2010, Ilkley Harriers took on the organisation of the Relays. As the venue moved up to White Wells, the legs were shortened slightly to 2 miles and a 1 mile leg was introduced for younger runners.
