Race Description

The Falcon Flyer route has been slightly altered since 2010 to take account of winter conditions and to avoid retracing steps from Robin Hoods Bay.

Both the long and short routes start at the village hall in Ravenscar. The walk initially heads south west from the village and joins the Moorland Road and then on the footpath to the Three Lords’ stones. The route now heads south along the Pye Rigg footpath until it emerges from the plantation on the A171. After crossing the A171 the track along Cowgate Rigg is taken until it joins Broadlands Slack. From here the footpath is followed to Harwood Dale.

From Harwood Dale the metalled road is followed to Lownorth Bridge and check point 2. A long uphill section follows as the route now heads north to Pike Rigg, Brown Hill and eventually to Burn Howe Duck Pond.

From here the walk now heads east along the Lyke Wake walk route as it crosses Jugger Beck and rises to Jugger Howe. The car park at Jugger Howe is the split for the long and short routes. The short route continues along the Lyke Wake walk route to Beacon Howe before returning to the finish at the village hall.

The long route heads north from the car park and crosses the A171 to Cook House. The walk continues north via Spring Hill to Colcroft Farm. The metalled road is taken west until Kettle Well Cottage where the footpath north is taken. this footpath is followed past Park Wall and Demesne Farm . The route now heads south for a short time until the footpath crossing the old railway is taken to Mill Beck Farm.

From here the track to Stoupebrow Cottage is taken and then the road to the old railway line below Stoupe Brow quarry. The old railway line is then taken back to Ravensar and the finish at the village hall.
