One of Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team’s major fund raising events, the Cleveland Survival, took place on Saturday March 24th 2018. The event involved competitors (walkers or runners) navigating their way around a circular route across the North York Moors. The event starts from a different location every year and the entrants can select from a short or long about course.

The 2018 event started in the village of Great Ayton and took in parts of the Esk Valley, Danby and Castleton before ending at the Woman Institute Hall in Great Ayton. Weather on the day was perfect and the going underfoot somewhat heavy. Thanks to all the support team for their efforts in organising an amazing event and delivering delicious food at the finish line.
300 members of the public from all over the country turned up to take part in the event that this year.
2018’s event was the 35th “Survival” that the rescue team has organised. Again at this years event many familiar faces appeared to take part and the team had a historic event with 3 generations of team land rovers being photographed on the moors.
