There are now over 70 Fell Races, 20 Sportives, MTB, Trail, Potholing, Triathlon, Canoeing, Climbing, Orienteering, Riding, Windsurfing, Walking, Swimming and Paragliding Events taking place or passing through the Yorkshire Dales every single year!

Almost at the crossroads of the country, approximately halfway between Lands End to John O’ Groats and midway on the Coast to Coast, the Yorkshire Dales can indeed rightly claim to be at the centre of Outdoor Activities in the UK!
