The Race Course for Great Yorkshire Run - Harrogate
ABOUT THE EVENT
We’re partnering with Harrogate Harriers & Athletic Club to bring you a new 10k through the beautiful spa town of Harrogate.
The Great Yorkshire Run – Harrogate, in association with Theakston, will have an intimate and exclusive feel. Featuring a quality course and the organisation that you would expect from a Great Run event, all set within a picturesque town location.
Harrogate is also just a stone's throw away from ITV's Emmerdale set, so we are bringing you some of your favourite characters to run with you at the event!
All finishers will receive a technical t-shirt, a bottle of Aqua Pura water and Lucozade and a small finisher’s bag.
This beautiful 10k route starts and finishes on Montpellier Hill in the Montpellier Quarter, home to exclusive shops, bars, award winning restaurants and the famous Betty’s Cafe Tearoom.
You will head out on a short lap, turning up Valley Drive and then onto Cold Bath Road before heading through the leafy streets towards the Stray, a popular spot for picnics and outdoor games.
Here you follow alongside Otley Road before heading back onto Montpellier Hill, past the cheering crowds at the start to begin your 2nd lap.
The picturesque, multi-terrain course then takes you through the English Heritage Grade II Listed Valley Gardens alongside blooming shrubs and herbaceous beds before you turn onto Harlow Moor Road and into the bridle path towards the highly acclaimed Royal Horticultural Society’s Harlow Carr gardens.
As you pass by you’ll turn back into Pinewoods along the footpath back onto Harlow Moor Road before heading down Harlow Moor Drive and out onto Cold Bath Road.
Here you will follow the same route out towards the Stray, along Otley road with the final run along the path before crossing the finish line in the heart of the town centre.
