The Dave Parry Winter and Summer Fell Race Series
(North Yorkshire Moors)

The North Yorkshire Moors are a slightly off-the-grid gem of an upland area with a diverse range of terrain stretching from the eastern North Sea coast to the western edge with the Moors' high point, ‘Round Hill’, at 454 metres and Sutton Bank on the south-east corner with glorious views across the Vale of York.

Fell racing on the North Yorkshire Moors and the name Dave Parry are inextricably linked, the winter and summer fell race series, the bedrock of fell racing, being named in his memory. The fell racing year of typically 25 and more races opens halfway through the winter series with the Captain Cook's Race on New Year's Day (not a series counter). Our AL race, Bilsdale, is held in March and the winter series rounds off with Blakey Blitz, a tough AM. The Fox and Hounds Chase in May opens the Summer Series. 2022 sees a return of old and new races including Glaisdale Rigg, Cock and Howe and Beyond, Viking Chase and, concluding the series, Fryup Frazzler in September. The summer will hopefully see a short series of country show fell races. October is time for the return of winter series racing, including Saltergate Gallows, Eskdale Eureka and, to finish the year, festive favourite Guisborough Woods on 27 December.
