—Inclined to Madness.

Knavesmire won the Men’s and Ladies team prizes at this 7 mile North Yorkshire Moors Fell Race.
The race started at the base of Clay Bank ( nr Helmsley – Stokesley road ) and featured a very fast first couple of miles going out along a well made track. Then comes the stinger, a 3/4  mile long constant gradient climb up an arrow straight old railway incline, a line which used to go as far as Rosedale .
There then followed a further speedy blast along the Cleveland Way to Round Hill , the highest point on the Moors , followed by a last downhill sprint through the woods to the finish.
Great fun on a beautiful evening.
