The route is 36 miles long 56.9km and is a linear walk with 5341 feet of total ascent

Join Steven and David for an epic journey over the North York Moors.  The day challenge event follows the official longer route of the White Rose Walk heading south to north by first ascending to the White Horse at Kilburn and ending at Teesside's Matterhorn Roseberry Topping.  The escarpments on the western and northern sides of the plateau are followed and several amazing viewpoints are visited Whitestone Cliff and Cringle Moor both giving far reaching aspects of rural Yorkshire.

This route almost in its entirety follows the Cleveland Way, a great way of celebrating the 50th anniversary of this long distance path clocking up some miles and testing your walking legs in good company.

This route is challenging and a good level of fitness and stamina is necessary, the pace will be steady around three to three and a half miles per hour to complete in daylight hours. 

The leaders will be staying in the town close to the start point the evening before.
