About the event
The time has come for this year’s Yorkshire Green Lane Run! This will take place on Sunday 7th May 2023 and will visit the Yorkshire Dales.
The rendezvous for the day will be Tesco Car Park in Skipton (BD23 2AG), at 09:00am, with an aim to set off and begin the day at 09:30. Please note, Tesco only opens at 10:00 so please bear this in mind.
Leaders will be a crucial part of the day being a success, so please volunteer if you have any experience. All start and finish points for each lane will be given in with traditional OS GR format along with W3W in order to make it as simple as possible. A leader’s responsibility will be joining the dots and making sure the whole group has fun!
In order to reduce the number of cars on a single lane, groups will be limited to four vehicles wherever possible.
As with any green laning day, it is advised to bring recovery equipment, maps, mobile phone, CB radio, food and drink and warm/waterproof clothing. Due to the damage caused by weather and illegal off-piste driving, many lanes are starting to be restricted with TRO’s being in place. This is usually to allow for GLASS and local councils to manage the surface of lanes, however, recently a lot of lanes are remaining closed, or one-way. This makes it difficult to create flowing routes which maximise off-road driving. As a result, the planned lanes can change with weather conditions, and the need for localised marshalling may be required. It is therefore possible that some scratching of paintwork etc. may occur, particularly with larger vehicles. Roof racks can be susceptible to catching on low branches so any information about the vehicle that can be given would be beneficial to place your vehicle on the correct routes.
