Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some typical questions we get asked about accommodation for the event.

Is There Somewhere I Can Spend The Night?

We have secured the use of an adjacent field in which to camp free of charge at Threshfield. Toilet facilities will be provided, and showers will be available to use in the school as before. No parking is permitted within the camping field; parking is limited to the entrants’ car park at Threshfield Old Quarry. A free shuttle bus operates between the car park and the school. Camper vans can be accommodated in the Threshfield Old Quarry car park as before, where toilet facilities will also be available.

If you want to camp on Friday night please tick the box on you entry form to help us plan, you can also order a supper for the Friday night at the same time.
If you plan to arrive on the Friday evening we ask that you do so between 19:00 (7pm) and midnight, supper is served until 22:30 (10:30pm).

What Local Accommodation Is Available?

There are a number of Bed and Breakfast establishments near the Finish in Threshfield. Below are two links you could try. Threshfield is the ‘hamlet’ where the school is located, Grassington may also be an option as it is only a mile away and is larger.

I Can’t Get Up Early, What About Stopping Near The Start?

We suggest this isn’t a good idea since the route is not circular and there is no direct public transport service between the finish and the start, getting back to your car may be a problem. We do provide transport from the finish to the start on Saturday morning but not at any other time during the weekend.
Obviously if you have a driver who is not entering the event then this may be a possibility, you could try the local Tourist Information center for more details.
We ask that, out of consideration for local Threshfield residents on whose goodwill we depend, entrants please park only in the Quarry car park and not on any of the roads surrounding the school or in the field we have secured for camping.
