Glaisdale Rigg Fell Race 2016

The next event in the Northern Runner/Esk Valley Fell Race Series is Glaisdale Rigg on Sunday 21st February 2016. The race is organised by Loftus and Whitby AC and start/finishes at the Arncliffe Arms, Glaisdale, Near Castleton, Guisborough on the North Yorkshire Moors. Entry is on the day only (£6) and the fun starts at 10.30am. The course is 8.5 miles long with about 1800 feet of ascent.

Underfoot conditions are a real mix of road, track, open fell and muddy path. A fell shoe or very grippy trail shoe would be the best type of footwear.

A map of the route can be seen by clicking here. Please carry full fell kit as described in the Fell Runner Association Rules (Waterproof Jacket with a hood and taped seams, Waterproof pants, map, Compass, Whistle, Hat, Gloves, Energy Bar or alike). It can be very cold and exposed on the North Yorkshire Moors especially in February.
