This is one of
two short races that can be run in Cleveland. The start is at The Newton
Under Roseberry Car Park, currently owned by The National Trust. It is a
race with a long history, with annual races back to
someone's coronation in 1953 which makes 2003
it's 50th anniversary. There are usually two
races at least each year - the official fell race organised by Mandale
Harriers and a further race organised by Cleveland Mountaineering Club.
Having been involved with both clubs over the years I have run both and
both seem quite identical.
registration takes place in the car park 571128. The start and finish
are adjacent to this on Roseberry Lane 571129. The rules are simple as
Roseberry Common is open access. ‘Touch the Trig’ at 579126, using
Roseberry Lane ‘up and down’ until you reach or after you leave Newton
