King of the Hill

Paul Caswell, local legend and rider with Harrogate Nova receives his complimentary Club Run t-shirt as the long standing King of the Mountains (KOM) on the major climb on our Moonglu Club Run route.

Officially called Illton Grange Climb on Strava but known equally as Warthermarske and Swinton to those that take it on.


I consider 10 minutes to be a good time on the 2 mile climb out of Masham and it's a real challenge to many that have ridden it. I have tackled it 59 times over the last 4 years with a PR of 9:17 and Paul rode it in 8 minutes and 15 seconds in September 2012 and that time has stood since then.  

Can he be knocked off? We don't know, it would have to be some ride.
