The course is suitable for all ability levels whether affilliated to a running club or not. The route starts at Knaresborough Cricket Club and takes runners along trails descending the crag to a tarmaced section alongside the River Nidd. Mixed terrain leads to a trail through woodland before a fast tarmaced section returns runners to a narrow path adjacent to the river.  Crossing the bridge near the Petryfying Well, there is a further riverside section before ascending back up the crag towards the finish line where a medal and a goody bag will be presented to all finishers. Approximately half of the race is on tarmac.

The race takes its name from the term for a person born in Knaresborough - a Crag Rat.
