Haverah Trail Race 2016
The Harrogate Haverah Trail Race comprises approximately 10 miles of trails and bridleways, wonderfully situated in the scenic Yorkshire setting of Haverah Park and within easy reach of the famous spa town of Harrogate. The course follows a circular route from Beckwithshaw that takes you down Pot Bank and into Haverah Park, then around Beaver’s Dyke and John O’Gaunts reservoirs, including the castle remains. It will be flagged and well-marshalled, navigation skills (although useful) are not necessary. There will be a water stop at the Sun Inn in Norwood and food will be provided at the race finish free of charge to all competitors. The cricket club bar will also be open.
Harrogate Harriers & A.C. look forward to welcoming you to our first off-road race and what we hope will become a permanent local fixture.
