Wholly located within the National Park, and utilising sections of the Cleveland Way, this area is superbly suited to trail running. The course is rich and varied with reminders to Yorkshire's fine heritage all around - from the dry stone walls and disused railway lines, to the hardy sheep flocks up on the moors. The world famous Whitby Abbey is just a few miles up the road, so there is plenty to make a weekend long visit well worthwhile.

Endurancelife North York Moors Marathon routes

The routes are all fully waymarked and no other navigation aids are needed. Many people, as a backup, upload the .GPX files from the event webpage and have these running on their chosen handheld navigation aid. It is important on the longer distances classes that you study the route online in good detail so you familiarise yourself with where you are going. Sadly from time to time members of the public tamper with signs and this can have catastrophic ramifications - thus please be proactive in minimising the risks of getting lost by arriving prepared.

Water Stations will be positioned strategically along the course approximately every 6 miles (every 2 to 3 miles for the 10K).

Water Stations may also double up as Checkpoints where electronic timing will take place. Participants will be required to “Chip” their electronic timing tag at all Checkpoints and at the Finish.

Kit List

Visit the event website for a full list of mandatory kit for each race. In addition to the mandatory kit, the following items are recommended:

    Trail shoes (highly recommended). We have stopped this being a mandatory kit item as, with the growing market of cross over shoes (Ultra specific shoes etc), it has become impossible for us to reasonably vet. Not only will you have a safer event, but you will have a more enjoyable experience if you have appropriate footwear - hence we encourage all participants to wear trail shoes.
    Waterproof jacket and trousers
    Sun cream
    Paths may be thick with foliage so, although all are passable, you may wish to bear this in mind when considering clothing choice


Spectators are greatly encouraged and can be a big boost to all those taking part. Although there are numerous places from which to spectate, check out the event website for a list of locations chosen to be accessible and with convenient parking. Please pay particular attention to any points where we ask spectators NOT to stop - this is due to inadequate access / parking / safety of participants. Thank you.
