2019: 61 Callouts | 2018: 78 Callouts

Events to be attended by the Team

Owing to the COVID-19 restrictions most of the events that we were due to host or attend in 2020 have been cancelled. If things improve then we’ll add more dates here but for the time being this is the latest information on forthcoming events:

Sunday 19th July 2020:     The Viking Chase – CANCELLED

This year’s Viking Chase was cancelled but should return in 2021. For further information on other fell races that may take place later in the year please check with the organisers Esk Valley Fell Club

Saturday 5th September 2020:    The Highcliff 4-Tops Challenge – CANCELLED

Sadly we have had to make the decision to cancel this year’s 4-Tops event owing to the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions. Hopefully, it will return in 2021 – normally the first Saturday after the August Bank Holiday weekend, so the provisional date is 4th September 2021.

Saturday 14th November 2020:     The Cleveland Survival – CANCELLED

Update as of 29th Sept 2020 re the Cleveland Survival:

It is with regret that we have made the decision to cancel this year’s event that had been rescheduled to 14th November 2020. The changing Government position on local restrictions and lockdowns means that we do not feel it is appropriate to run the event at this time. We must consider all aspects of the event and have made the decision to protect entrants, Team members and local residents.

Entrants will be receiving an email from SiEntries (or direct from us if you entered by post) regarding what happens now regarding your entry fee. There is no option to carry forward to March 2021 as we do not know what the situation will be regarding organising an event at that time. We are hoping to organise a weekend of ‘virtual activities’ where people can undertake a walk/run within their local area (abiding by local restrictions), share photographs and maybe get some sponsorship. More information on that will be published shortly. Finally we would like to thank you for your support and we really hope to see you on the startline in March 2021.

Open now until 30th November 2020: The Cleveland Tops & Bones Virtual Survival

Combining the spirit of the cancelled Cleveland Survival, the Whalebones Walk and the 4-Tops into one single virtual event giving you the opportunity to take part in whatever way you want. You can choose to run, walk, cycle or come up with your own activity (not necessarily outdoors or physical) to raise funds for the Team. Be it for a few hours or spread across a number of days or even just a few minutes. Details here!

Sunday 29th November 2020:     The Eskdale Eureka
