The event can be entered as a pair or a solo participant.

Starting and finishing from the Village Hall in the beautiful setting of Goathland, in The North York Moors National Park, the fictional village of Aidensfield in the popular Police drama Heartbeat which was filmed there for many years.

Runners or walkers will navigate themselves around a course of circa 37 miles visiting five listed structures otherwise known as Triangulation Pillars.  The route is one of your own choosing as long as public rights of way are used and the Triangulation Pillars are visited in the order given to you on the morning of the event The CP and pillar locations will be sent out to participants prior to the event so that some route planning can be done. One of the CP locations will not however be revealed until you are on the course at one of the checkpoints. This checkpoint, once you have plotted it and reached it will have a surprise for you and an item left there, which is to be brought back to the finish with you...

There will be a master map with a suggested route marked on it for you to view at registration on the morning of the event.

Be assured that any route that you choose will have a variety of terrain, stunning views, and plenty of hills.

Participants will need to be self-supported however there will be CP locations providing some snacks and drinks.

Participants should be competent in using maps and compasses, this is a challenge for the individuals taking part so there are no support crews, or support runners /walkers allowed. Pairs and solos must go to each CP and complete the full course. Runners and walkers will have 15 hours to complete the event.

Registration will take place at Goathland Village Hall from 7:30 am with a mass start at 8:30 am.
