RUNNING NUMBERS TO BE COLLECTED ON THE DAY

7 Mile Trail Race
This 7 mile road and trail race starts from the playing fields of King James's school, the undulating 7 mile course takes in both public and private roads, riverside trails in the Nidd Gorge and woodland tracks before returning to King James's School and ending with a circuit of the athletics track and a funnelled finish .

2.5 Mile Fun Run
The 2.5 mile Fun Run route is a joyous mix of metalled road, public right of way and open school grounds with five distinct sections:
1. The mass start at the end of the school grounds gives the racers an opportunity to spread out and avoid congestion later on. After 400m of cross country, the race joins Aspin Lane until an official crossing point (where the roads are closed for the event) allows competitors to join winding paths past the Aspin estate.
2. On joining Abbey Road, the race turns west (upstream) past some of the finest wooded areas and houses in Yorkshire. The road is winding and flat for about one mile until markers point the course into the woods.
3. At this point the path is narrow, short (about 100m) but steep. It is this section that makes the trail unsuitable for child pushchairs etc.
4. Once the top of the crag is reached, the path is followed along the edge (don’t worry, hedges and fences prevent a possible fall) this time going east before re-joining Aspin Lane at the crossing point.
5. The final section follows Aspin Lane back into the school and a funnelled finish.

“We’ve done the Knaresborough Fun Run every year for the last few years and it’s a brilliant event. The kids can take part from quite a young age (ours started at 5) and they get a great sense of achievement from getting round. The short route is just challenging enough – you don’t have to be that fit to do it, but if you are a regular runner, it is long enough to be good exercise if you try to put in a good time. The best thing about the short run is the sense of fun and community that you get from hundreds of people all running together, just for the pleasure of it. There is plenty to keep any non-runners happy back at the school while you’re out. Meanwhile, the longer run is quite a worthwhile challenge even for a regular runner. It’s more of a trail run really, with some of it on tracks down by the river. For the maximum Knaresborough Fun Run challenge, do both! There’s just enough time to get round the main run, have a quick breather and then do the family run with kids in tow. All in all a great day and I’d recommend it to anyone.”
