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.
Littleborough is a place made for running and many do not realize some of the great runs that can be had around it. With this in mind, I have designed a fast and picturesque course that is run on good runnable roads, paths and some country lanes. The course, after the first start section, is on a small gradual decline in terms of elevation (see elevation chart). This makes the race feel downhill and makes for a really enjoyable running experience.
Beeston is first mentioned in the Domesday Book as Bestone, which comes from the Old English, Bent Grass.

The first mention of Bramley comes in the Domesday Book compiled for William the Conqueror in 1086. The Bram part of the name occurs in several other Yorkshire village names such as Bramhope and Bramham. In Old English (the language of the Anglo-Saxons) it signifies the broom plant. Ley means a clearing. It would seem therefore that Bramley started out life as 'a clearing covered with broom'. In recent years the town has been referred to as the village that disappeared, the demolition of many historic buildings left many of the local residents unhappy, with a feeling of disappointment that the true character of the town had been lost forever. Despite the change in the buildings and appearance of the town what has remained is the true gritty character of genuine Yorkshire folk and the friendly feeling. Thas run thee 10K a Sit thissen Dahn
