THE bi-annual Scarborough Rock Winter Challenge Walk will be held on Saturday, January 5.

The event is organised by the East Yorkshire Long Distance Walkers Association and includes two routes, one of 16 miles and one of 25 miles, starting at Scalby Parish Hall.

The walk, one of the UK’s oldest challenge walks, attracts hundreds of hikers and runners.

A badge and certificate are awarded to all entrants who “beat the rock”.
