Canadian Gold Medal Plates

An Olympic Gold Medal Winner, a Comedian & 40 Canadians visit the Yorkshire Dales

Mark Reid ('The Inn Way' author & Mountain Leader) and Richard Tarran (Expedition & Mountain Leader) hosted 40 Canadian guests for a week's hill-walking throughout the Yorkshire Dales at the beginning of June.

The Canadians had bid for this trip at special gala dinners throughout Canada last autumn to support their Olympic athletes. Accompanying them was well-known Canadian comedian Ron James and 2010 Winter Olympics Men's skeleton Gold Medal winner Jon Montgomery.

We had a fantastic week of great walks, food, accommodation, beer and laughter. We stayed for three nights at the CB Inn (Arkengarthdale) and three nights at Simonstone Hall, and walked around Muker, Reeth, Great Shunner Fell and Askrigg. We also visited several pubs to sample some local ales...

Would you like us to organise a bespoke walking event for you, your friends or your company? We know the paths and pubs of the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Peak District and North York Moors like the back of our hands! Visit for more information
