Race Description

A 13.1 mile challenging off road half marathon, Starting from Ravenscar Village Hall situated 700 feet above sea level, overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay in the North York Moors National Park and midway between Whitby and Scarborough, the route then gently descends the beautiful coastal path along the dramatic sea cliffs, with panoramic views down the coast line towards Scarborough, on reaching Petard point its through Staintondale via open fields, woodland and the disused railway line until you reach Cloughton Wyke, then its back to Ravenscar all the way on the coastal footpath via the via the picturesque roller coastal of Hayburn Wyke (that’s a nice way of saying a killer of a down and uphill section that will make your legs and lungs burn). Then back to Ravenscar for those stunning sea cliff views (though you will still be sweating from the last bit and hoping for the sea wind not to blow).

Also a 10km event starting and finishing at the same location as the half but with later start time, the route will us part of the cinder track (disused railway line) then through wood lands and fields, before returning along a 5km section of the single track path along the cliff top.

Both above organised and manned by volunteers from the Mountain rescue Team, so all monies raised goes to the charity
