THE COAST TO COAST RUN 2020. - Those who can, should meet Ben on the Friday lunchtime to hopefully give everyone the chance to join in from anywhere and give us a little more time to do the great routes this area has to offer. However, if you can only join us for one or two days please feel free to do so. As Ben will be leading this run you will need to book your own accommodation at or near Whitby for the night of Friday 18th and also at or near Hawes for Sat 19th September. Both towns have many Inns and BnBs. Some establishments are reluctant to book a single night until nearer the date but late availability is the norm. Also there is often space at the YHAs in both Whitby & Hawes along with Boggle Hole & Ingleton a bit further away.
