Gisborough Moors Fell Race 2018
The next race in the Dave Parry Winter Fell Race Series is Gisborough Moors Race on Sunday 15th April 2018. This will be the final race in the Winter Series unless the resceduled Blakey Blitz goes ahead on the 29th April which was called off due to the snow in March. Registration/start/finish is at Guisborough Rugby Club. Entry is £5 on the day only and the race starts at 10.30am. The route is about 12.5 miles with about 2600 feet of ascent. First held in 1977 Gisborough Moors has become the classic fell race on the North Yorkshire Moors. The route goes over Captain Cooks, Roseberry Topping and High Cliff Nab. The terrain is a mix of moorland paths and firmer trail. On a dry day grip is only an issue on a few short sections through the woods, over the moor and down Roseberry Topping. So, less grippy trail shoes will do the job. On a wet day you will need some more grip. Click here to see a map of the route.
