Knaresborough Crag Rat Run 2024

5-mile mixed-terrain race, organised by Knaresborough Striders

The race takes its name from the term for a person born in Knaresborough - a Crag Rat. The route starts at Knaresborough Cricket Club and take runners along trails descending the crag to a tarmaced section alongside the River Nidd; mixed terrain leads to a trail through woodland before a fast tarmaced section returns runners to a narrow path adjacent to the river. Crossing the bridge near the Petryfying Well, there is a further riverside section 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 of 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.
