As a reward for taking part there will be a race memento to each finisher, well stocked checkpoints, lots of laughs and fun. Great friendly marshals! Stunning scenery! Finishers party with cake, chips and goodies! Bring and share is encouraged-Princess Challenge Runners love cake. You are more than welcome to stay after the event to enjoy it! Bring and share helps us raise more money for the team, so it is very much appreciated.

This is a fundraising event for the Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue team; last year it raised in excess of £3,000! That is over £10,000 for the team over 5 years.The search and rescue team need to raise a minimum of £40,000 to keep operational, it would be great if the Challenges this year could make them at least £4,000. As always there is the option to get your best fancy dress out to take on the challenge in your best Princess outfit-there will be a prize in each race distance for the Best Dressed Princess :) This is open to our male competitiors too.
