"I've  never thought of going up and down Roseberry Topping three times but I absolutely loved it"

Have a look at our website or SilverBackTrails FB page for photos and drone footage of this years event.

Sunday 18th August 2024
Registration is from 08:30 am and start at 09:30.

A trail running event of around 10 miles on the beautiful North York Moors National Park.

The route will take you through forest tracks over heather-clad moorland, which in August should be a stunning purple colour, and up one of the most recognisable hills in the country, on early mapping, it was even classed as a mountain...

Othnesbery, more usually known as Roseberry Topping has been linked to Odin chief of the Norse Gods, it would have been well known to the Vikings who lived throughout the area during the time of the Danelaw. Can you dig deep and conquer Othnesbery’s Revenge where a sting in the tail will await you at Odins Seat?

Places are limited to 50 competitors all finishers will receive a bespoke medal especially commissioned for the event and a certificate of their achievement which will feature an exceptional part of the route…
