Castle to Castle Half

Castle to Castle Half

A 13 miles half marathon route from Knaresborough Castle to Ripley Castle via the trail path through Nidd Gorge and back into town via the flat, tarmac Nidderdale Greenway.

Course:

Leave the castle grounds via Kirkgate and Water Bag Bank onto Waterside and cross Low Bridge to the Beryl Burton Cycleway. Cut down to the gorge off Bilton lane and follow the trail path along the river until it reaches the viaduct. Join the Greenway cycle route here all the way to Ripley and complete a lap of the village before returning along the same route. Leave the Greenway path at Bogs Lane which leads to Knaresborough Road and down the hill back across Low Bridge and onto Waterside. Finish up Castle Ings Road and back into the castle grounds to complete the route.

 

The route can be completed either way around or can be done both ways through the gorge or along the Greenway path if preferred.
