Kiplingcotes Derby

The Kiplingcotes Derby, which is run along the Wolds Way in Yorkshire, England, on the third Thursday in March, dates back more than 450 years, making it the longest-running "flat race" (as opposed to the steeplechase, which involves jumping over obstacles) in England.

It begins near South Dalton and finishes near Kiplingcotes Farm in the parish of Middleton-on-the-Wolds. More...
