Race Description

The Crosses – A 53 mile circular challenge around the North York Moors taking in a number of the moorland crosses.

First run in the early 1970s to raise valuable funds for the then Scarborough and District Search and Rescue Team the event starts and finishes in Goathland and traditionally had to be completed within 24 hours.

The event was held through the 70′s and 80′s but, unfortunately the team had to call a halt when entries had fallen to such an extent that it was uneconomical to hold the event.

The team are resurrecting the event for our fiftieth anniversary in 2015 over the weekend 4th – 5th July 2015.
•Each entry in 2015 receives a commemorative Buff and a goody bag at the finish.
•Entries close on the 1st June (no entries on the day).
•Entry numbers limited to 300.
•Entry fee includes car parking in Goathland.
•Event starts at 12 noon and participants must complete the event within 24 hours.
•Walk or run the challenge
