Overview

The annual ‘KNARESBOROUGH CRAG RAT RUN’ was first run in 2016. This 5 mile race continues the legacy of the long-standing Fun Run series of races which were previously organised by King James’s schools. Named the Crag Rat Run (a Crag Rat being a person born in Knaresborough), the race starts and ends at Knaresborough Cricket Club, Aspin Lane taking runners down the crag, along trails, through woods, and along the River Nidd before ascending back up the crag to the finish line where a medal and a goody bag will be presented to all finishers. Approximately half the race is on tarmac. There are prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd finishers, plus 1st, 2nd and 3rd female finishers (if different), plus spot prizes. All finishers will receive a medal.

Brilliant local no frills race, cheap as chips to enter, well organised by one of our local running clubs - Knaresborough Striders and a great atmosphere on the day. A mixture of terrain and it's a bit lumpy - including some steep steps to go up with about a mile to go!

Straight forward and well organised mixed terrain hilly 5 mile race. Registration was simple and quick. Race started on time. Route was hilly with a mixture of terrain. Some trails were naturally narrow so overtaking had to wait in places. A good hill towards the end followed ...Read full review
