Knaresborough Crag Rat Run

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 put on by King James’s school but no longer exists.

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 and is over a mixed terrain course which does include the crag as well as some of the best bits of previous KJS based runs.

There are prizes for the fastest Male and Female runners, and all finishers will receive a medal.

The event is kindly sponsored by our friends at Dale Contractors. Why not visit their website for details of how they can help you with your building projects –
