Covid - 19 has truly turned 2020 upside down with the majority of outdoor events either cancelled or rearranged.

Here at Dales Active we are now starting to concentrate on events for 2021 which, hopefully will be a happier time for all!  

Dales Active or Active Dales, whichever way you look at it, one thing is certain, there is an awful lot of it going on out there.

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!

 Be inspired by the best that the Yorkshire Dales has to offer and check out the Dales Active Events page!
