Course Details

The circular route that starts and finishes outside Harewood House is tough with on off-road paths, muddy uneven trails and grass with several inclines. Please take care when running, particularly if the weather conditions are poor.

There is a cut off point at the 8.5 mile point, if runners have not reached here by 12.30 they will be driven to the finish line.

This event will be fully marshalled for your safety, with medical support provided.

Kit List

There are no specific requirements - some people will wear trail shoes whilst others will just wear normal trainers - both are fine.


Feel free to bring as many of your friends, family members and dogs (on a tight lead) to join in the cheering en-route and at the finish line. Please note that Harewood House is closed to the public during the winter and so will not be open on event day.


Our events cannot happen without the help of our fantastic volunteers. If you would like to help out in the lead up to this event or on event day then please get in touch with BHF and we will send you more information.

The email address for volunteers is: [email protected]

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    The race is a fabulous run around parts of the harewood estate rarely seen by visitors. The off road half marathon is a good test of stamina and endurance covering forest paths, fields, meadows and steep hills. The information leading up to the race was excellent and organisation on the day was smooth including the car parking, and bag storage. It was a glorious day which led to spectacular views of the house, lake, deer park and even the outside set of Emmerdale! The course was a little shorter than the half marathon which is frustrating when you are trying to pace yourself using your watch. The Volunteers, Marshals, Scouts and Junior Soldiers were excellent. The race doesn't appear on Power of 10 but it is all for good cause and I would highly recommend it!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Really enjoyed the trails but not the crossing the tufted grassy hills. Route marking could be improved and mile markers were inaccurate. Marshals could be encouraged be be more enthusiastically involved and generally low key atmosphere.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great run for a great charity, very challenging but scenic course, hilly with about 50% on made tracks and 50% on open pasture. I would recommend
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Excellent run. If your mainly a road runner this will really put you to the test. This is hilly with spectacular views. Awesome atmosphere and friendly. People will even help you along if your struggling. Forget the pace, forget the watch enjoy the run!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A great course and well organised event.Nice easy 2 mile on the flat/downhill to start then it rises up and back down again all the way to the finish with lovely views all the way round.Watch out for the deers too!Will be back next year definitely.
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    A better idea of the course profile - how many uphills and downhills along the course. Better signage/more marshalls towards the end of the 10k along the 'detour' off the main drive. Suitable footwear for the course - whether road running shoes or trail running shoes more appropraite.
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Just keep ya fingers crossed for a bright day, it makes all the difference!!
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Loved the course, just a shame it wasn't an accurately measured 10km.
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    I thought it was well organised and had a good atmosphere. Wasnt the best weather nor was it the worst it couldve been! I enjoyed the course, it was challenging but also interesting, shame it was slightly under the 10k although at the time I didnt mind! :-)
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Signposted quite poorly at the end and due to this many missed a section of the race. Also would have expected a different medal to the year before.
