Berghaus Trail Chase™ - Location Revealed!
|Above: Shane Director, Shane Ohly reveals the locations for the Event Centre, Overnight Campsite and three different start locations for Berghaus Trail Chase™ this August.|
We are very excited to announce that the first Berghaus Trail Chase™ will be based from Osmotherley in the beautiful North Yorks Moors National Park.
The astute amongst our competitors will have caught the hints about the location of the Event Centre, Overnight Campsite and various starts from watching our various video updates in the previous months. However, this news story nicely confirms all the location details in one place.
Event Centre - Osmotherley
The Event Centre is where all the competitors will park on Saturday morning, register, catch buses to the different starts and finish on the Sunday. The field we are using for the Event Centre is where the Osmotherley Show is held and it is a well-drained, flat field with a gravel track running along one side. The exact StreetMap location is HERE and the Google Maps image below also shows the exact location. It is just a few minutes drive from the A19. The closest postcode for SatNav is DL6 3PY.
Overnight Campsite – Chop Gate
The Overnight Campsite is situated in another great field that is flat and has a stream running adjacent to it. The field is next to the village hall, which is where our Overnight Camp HQ will be. This is where will be providing food, beer and music. The great thing about using the village hall is that should the weather be anything but glorious August sunshine, we have access to a large indoor space. The exact StreetMap location is HERE and the Google Maps image below also shows the exact location. The closest postcode for SatNav is DL6 3PY
No Friends & Family Allowed at the Overnight Campsite
Please note that there is no access or camping allowed for anyone (friends, family etc etc) but competitors at the Chop Gate Overnight Campsite.
Black, Red & Blue Starts
We are not releasing the exact location of the starts, as we want the excellent routes to remain something of a surprise. However, so that competitors can get a general idea of where they are going we will say roughly where each of the routes starts. They are:
Black = Hutton-le-Hole (Location HERE)
Red = Helmsley (Location HERE)
Blue = Lion Inn (Location HERE)
Steve Birkinshaw - New Wainwright Record
One final note, and that is an apology that we are a week late revealing this information. Berghaus sponsored athlete, Steve Birkinshaw set a fantastic new Wainwright record (518km, 36,000m and 214 summits!) last week and this thoroughly distracted us! If you haven’t already seen his blog, please have a read HERE and check the video of Steve finishing below:
