After two years disrupted by COVID-19 we hope that we can attend more events in 2022, so please keep checking back here regularly as things may change. So far we have:
The 2022 event has been and gone! But you can see our YouTube video of the day (link to external site).
Please remember to check ahead for the 2023 event (normally held each March). The Survival is a friendly event open to runners and walkers based on an orienteering course of between 15 and 30 miles (normally two options to choose from). Can be completed as an individual or as part of a group, with a series of checkpoints identified by a grid reference and description. The aim is to visit each checkpoint or via point in the order given on the route card. As its name suggests this is not an event to be taken lightly. The time of year means the weather can be inclement, the route takes in the highs and lows of the North York Moors and requires you to be able to navigate and take care of yourself. See the Cleveland Survival Facebook page for details.
Many thanks to everyone from Redcar Racing for hosting the Team at their Easter Monday event. We collected a total of £738.20p on the day so huge thanks to all the spectators, punters, owners etc who donated their cash. All of that will go towards meeting the Team’s average annual running costs of approximately £42,000.
One of our Team members attended the Fair which was designed to provide information and advice about local services and support.
The championships – the ‘Guisborough 3 Tops’ saw over 400 competitors from all over the country participate. Funds raised from entry fees will go towards the Team (we assisted by supplying people for checkpoints and providing some safety cover). Update to follow in due course.
As usual, the route started at the Whalebones in Whitby and followed the Cleveland Way north to Saltburn-by-the-Sea and then onto Marske-by-the-Sea (finishing at Errington Primary School), a distance of approximately 22-miles. See our YouTube video of the day (link to external site)!

The Cleveland Hike runs every year in June and takes place on the North York Moors. The hike has been running for over 50 years so you can rest assured that it is great fun, and most importantly safe and well organised. The event takes place over two-days and teams can either enter for either one-day, or take on the full two-day challenge, camping overnight.
The Saturday route normally covers 20-25 miles and the Sunday route 10-15 miles making the whole event over 30 miles! For more details and how to enter click here (external site).
We may have a display stand and a vehicle at the carnival. Details to follow.

The walk (or run if you prefer) will hopefully start and finish in Guisborough (maybe at a new venue) and will take in Highcliff, Captain Cook’s Monument, Little Roseberry and Roseberry Topping. The route is normally around 12-miles long (maybe slightly more this year) with support provided by members of the Team along the way. If that’s too far there is a shorter route around 6-miles long (maybe a bit more this time) to Roseberry Topping and back. Watch this space and our social media for details when known.
