Event summary

The famous Lyke Wake challenge crosses the magnificent North York Moors in one day. We offer this route either as the traditional one day challenge, or as a slightly more "leisurely" two day challenge. Beginning in Osmotherley, the route crosses the breadth of the North York Moors National Park, to finish just over 40 miles east, at Ravenscar on the North Sea coast. Whichever challenge you choose, you will need to be a seasoned walker to complete this, but the thrill of completing will be worth all the energy expended!

Larpool Hall is directly ahead at the end of this road. A free car park is available in the grounds.
