Race Location and parking for junior and senior races:
All 3 races will take place on the land adjacent to the Yorkshire Showground.
See maps below. Car parking should not be a problem if you follow the guidelines below.

Access and Car Parking

1. For Junior races and for Club reps transporting tents only:
Please use Car Park 1 (see maps below), where limited space is available.
This car park (postcode HG2 8PN) is accessed from Hookstone Drive via Hookstone Wood Road.
As the senior course runs past the exit to Car Park 2, you may be delayed if you park there and want to leave shortly after the junior races are over.

2. For EVERYBODY ELSE (Senior runners and all those leaving after the senior race):
Please use Car Park 2 where there is ample parking for 700 - 800 cars and which is accessed from Wetherby Road, A661, by turning at the lights at Sainsbury’s (HG2 8QZ). Don’t turn into Sainsbury’s car park but continue along Railway Road until you reach the marshals who will show you where to park. The parking is about 400m / 5 minutes walk from the start area and toilets.

For the sake of the environment, please car share wherever possible.

Adequate toilet facilities will be available in the Great Yorkshire Showground and accessed via the Education Gate as shown on the maps and this will be sign-posted. Please leave these as you would wish to find them.
There are no changing or showering facilities.

Registration & Post-Race Food:
This will be at the scout hut adjacent to Car Park 1 on the map, across from The Harrogate Sports & Fitness Centre and not at HSFC itself.
Registration will be open from 8.45am – 9.45am for juniors and 9.00 – 10.45am for seniors. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE PREMISES WITH MUDDY FOOTWEAR OR CLOTHING

If you have registered online for the series, you do NOT need to come to Registration: if you don’t already have your race number, you should collect it from your club representative in the Start/ Finish field or beforehand. If you have just registered for Race 3, and you don’t already have your series race number, you should collect it from Registration.

‘On the day’ registration will be available for Seniors at a cost of £7 (£4 if you already have your race number for this season) and for Juniors at a cost of £4 (£1.50 if you already have your race number)

New entries close at 12 noon on the Friday 17th January. . As long as a runner has completed an online entry before entries close, they are eligible to be a ‘counter’.
On the day entries count as Guests for that race, but if they pay for a series entry, they are then automatically changed to ‘counters’ for the remaining races.

Hot soup & rolls will be served from just after 12 at the scout hut.

The Courses:
We are very grateful to The Yorkshire Agricultural Society for letting us use their land, car park and toilets. The area will be familiar to many as the home of The Great Yorkshire Show.

Crimple Valley is very popular with dog walkers and ramblers. We have no right of way over anyone else using the paths or trails so please be courteous at all times.

The courses will be marked or flagged, marshalled, and will be very muddy in places. The courses are not suitable for spikes owing to linking paths of gravel, tarmac and concrete. Quoted measurements are approximate.

The junior course is a lap of approximately one mile (two laps for the older age group) and is entirely on grass though, as there are crossings of concrete roads, the use of spikes is not recommended.

The senior course is two laps of approximately 2.5 miles each. The route is mainly on grass but also involves crossing concrete roads and other hard surfaces and sections of trails (not suitable for spikes). There are some quite technical sections in the senior course with exposed tree roots and rocks and a short steep descent with rough steps, also some low hanging branches in the wooded area. Please take care when navigating these areas.
