The annual fun run takes place every May Bank holiday in Kirkbymoorside. It leaves the town with a tough incline up the Gillamoor Road and out into open countryside. Runners pass through the nearby villages of Gillamoor and Fadmoor before heading back to Kirkbymoorside.
A challenging but beautiful circular route which is popular with runners who return every year to enjoy not just the run but the great atmosphere created by locals who pack out the High Street for the start and finish. Three runs for children of all ages precede the adult event.
Part of the tradition of the day is the Beadlam Tractor Run which passes through the town during the morning – hundreds of tractors take part and again this draws a great crowd. It’s always a day to remember in the town.
Runners come from far and wide and one of the comments we hear regularly is how friendly and welcoming Kirkbymoorside is and what a fantastic atmosphere there is on Race Day.
So, trainers on, squeeze into your lycra as there’s plenty of time for training between now and May! We’ll have regular pre-race updates so do look out for them on the blog.
You can pick up an entry form from shops and businesses in the local area.
