We’re super excited to announce that the Award-winning Durham Ox from Crayke (North Yorkshire) will be the official caterers at this year’s Yorkshire True Grit. Those of you from the area will no doubt have heard of the Durham Ox – and its far-reaching reputation means that some of you out of area folk have probably heard of it too.

We approached the team at the Durham Ox to take on the catering for the event because, quite simply, their food is excellent. We want you to enjoy the food as much as the event so we wanted a catering team that are as passionate about food as we are about biking. They embrace the principle of good food in relaxed surroundings and that will shine through at Yorkshire True Grit. The team at the Durham Ox source their ingredients locally and will cater for vegetarians, vegans and provide a simple but good choice of food at the event. The pricing will be Yorkshire – you’ll get a good portion for your money!

The Durham Ox Event Catering team will be on-site from Friday through to Sunday offering Breakfast, Dinner and Tea. (Or, Lunch and Supper depending on where you’re from). So, leave the stove at home. You won’t be able to resist the aromas coming from the catering area!

The Durham Ox is featured in Sawleys Guide, The Good Pub Guide, Diners Choice, and holds a Visit England Award for their breakfasts.

Durham Ox to cater at Yorkshire True Grit

Entry Closing Date

Well it’s not long now until Yorkshire True Grit starts!

The route is looking good. It’s a great mix of forest, bridleway, moorland track and of course a bit of singetrack thrown in there too.

Entries are building at quite a rate and we’ll be closing entries in the morning of Monday 17th June. So get your entries sorted before then. Depending on how numbers go we might be able to do entry on the day, but won’t know for sure until nearer the time. If we do offer this, then entry will be £55.00 for the Outlaw and Drive, and £30 for the Stampede. We’ll confirm whether we are able to do this or not nearer the time.

Camping at Yorkshire True Grit

We’re also encouraging you to book your camping in advance (https://yorkshiretruegrit.co.uk/product/camping/) it’s £5 per person/night in advance, and will be £6 per person per night if you don’t book until you arrive at the event. Booking your camping helps us manage the amount of food that you might want to buy, and the amount of refreshment (aka beer/gin) that you might want to drink. Camping, as always, will be basic. It is in a field (used for hay so will have been cut just before the event), and there’ll be running water and toilet. It’s the place to be for atmosphere and meeting up with other riders though. And you’ll get a great view from your tent!

Field for YTG Event HQ

 

We’ve been looking around for a little while now to find the right band to play at this year’s Yorkshire True Grit and The Fortunate Sons came to our attention and we loved their sound from the start of the first track we heard!

Based in Scarborough they’re pretty local to the event and their mix of classic and modern rock/pop songs is sure to add to the atmosphere at the event.

They’ll be live at around 4pm on Saturday – so some of you will be crossing the line as they play their first set.

Friend of Yorkshire True Grit, Lennie is the face and creative whizz behind Bad Faerie Creations. She’s previously helped out at Yorkshire True Grit events but this year has created some very limited edition wobbly bobbly hats as spot prizes for finishers of Yorkshire True Grit!

Prior to the start of the event, rider numbers will be picked at random. Cross the line having completed your chosen route (no prizes for those who swap during the event, or who short cut back) and you might be lucky and receive a Yorkshire True Grit wobbly bobbly hat!

Handknitted in wool these wobbly bobble hats are one-size fits all, and feature a Yorkshire True Grit badge!
