Pure North Castle Hill Challenge 2020

 Pure North Castle Hill Challenge postponed

Following the UK Government's announcement advising the public to stop non-essential contact, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the first ever Pure North Castle Hill Challenge which was originally scheduled for Saturday 9th May 2020.

Understandably there will be a lot of disappointed runners - but the safety and health of you the runners and the public must come first.

The event will now be moved to 2021, with the new date provisionally set as Saturday 8th May 2021.

All registered participants will have the option of transferring to the 2021 event at no additional cost, or alternatively receiving a full refund on their 2020 entry fee. All participants who signed up will soon be e-mailed individually with instructions on how to transfer to 2021 or claim their full refund.

Our team of volunteers have spent hours, weeks and months preparing for this event and are as disappointed as you that we can't deliver the event as originally planned.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us; our generous headline sponsor Pure North Cider Press, our chosen charity Hollybank Trust, our brilliant graphic designer Craig Noble at Gusto Creative Design, our fantastic army of volunteers, and of course the runners who registered to take part. Thank you enormously for helping us get this new event off the ground, it is hugely appreciated by everyone involved.

Thank you for your continued support and here's to seeing you on the start line in 2021!
