Venue:Standing Stones Rigg
Nearest town:Whitby
Event centre:Farmers Field
Postcode:YO22 4QL
Grid reference:NZ920033
Parking information:Standing Stones Rigg is to the east of the A171 about 8 kilometres south of Whitby. Parking is at grid reference NZ 920033. There isn't really a good postcode for Standing Stones Rigg, but YO22 4QN is a short distance to the north and YO22 4QL is a short distance to the south. 250m south of the junction between the A171 and the B1416 (Sneaton Corner), turn eastwards on to a farm track. Please drive slowly on this track, as runners will be crossing it or walking along it. Parking will be in a farmer's field. There will not be any parking marshalls. Please park sensibly and tidily, and be aware of other people around you when you get out of your car.
Dog rules:Sorry. Dogs are not allowed at this event as it is being held in sheep country. You may leave your dog in your car but, please, with a supply of water and with a window partly open to provide ventilation.


Description:Terrain: The area consists of open moorland with mixed runnability, including grass, bilberry and well-managed patchy heather. Bracken is significantly reduced from last year. Archaeological features abound, including bronze age burial mounds and standing stones. Terrain Safety All courses cross at least one farm track. There are very few vehicle movements on these tracks, but please be vigilant. Please remember that sheep droppings can transmit E. Coli and tick bites can transmit Lyme disease, and please be aware of adder bite symptoms. Map: 1:7,500 scale 5m contours A4 size. The maps will be printed on waterproof paper. The control descriptions will be printed on the maps, and loose copies will be available. Please use the provided hand sanitiser before taking your map and control descriptions in order to avoid any risk of contaminating other people's maps or control descriptions. Facilities: There will be a toilet near the parking area. Please bring your own toilet paper and hand sanitiser. (Toilet rolls can become contaminated with coronavirus. Hand sanitiser will be provided, but it's better if you use your own to avoid having to handle a sanitiser bottle that's been used by other people.) No drinks will be provided. Please bring your own refreshments.

Course description:Courses: Course Length Blue 6.0 km Green 4.2 km Short Green 2.0 km Yellow 1.9 km Yellow course note. Due to the shortage of paths, the Yellow course will go along the path to the Start (in the opposite direction to the walk to the Start), and will also go along part of the access road in – drivers please take care – and there will be a taped route between two controls. Results: As part of the arrangements to prevent the spread of coronavirus, there will be no split times printouts and there will be no results displayed at the event. Full results, split times, Splitsbrowser progressograms and RouteGadget will be available at www.clok.org.uk as soon as possible after the event. Note from the webmaster: If I can get a decent Internet connection from our hire cottage near Whitby – and if I can remember how to do it after all this time! – at least the basic results and split times should be on the web site by about 8 p.m. - 9 p.m. on Saturday evening.
