THE 5th ANNUAL KNARESBOROUGH CRAG RAT RUN
will take place in September 2021
Update 10th July 2020 – cancellation of 2020 event.
Having considered the latest England Athletics guidance on mass participation running events, it is with regret that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Knaresborough Crag Rat Run for 2020. We look forward to welcoming participants both old and new to our next race, currently scheduled for September 2021.

Our 2019 event:
This established and successful 5-mile race is based firmly in and around the town, starting and finishing at Knaresborough Cricket Club. It takes runners down the ancient crag, along trails, past the historic St.Robert’s Cave, through Birkham woods, and along the beautiful River Nidd before ascending back up the crag to the finish line where a medal and goody bag will be presented to all finishers. Approximately half the race is on tarmac.
Parking is available at Chapel Street car park and York Place car park, both a few minutes jog from Race HQ, and on-street parking in the immediate vicinity. Further details of car parking in the area can be found here
Toilets, baggage store and limited changing facilities are available on site at the cricket club.
