Route information
The course is a circular route that starts and finishes outside Harewood House.

Due to the terrain, runners are advised to take care when running, particularly if the weather conditions are poor. It is a physically challenging course but runners will be treated to some spectacular views.
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.

Extremely tough but so beautiful!! Lots of different elements of grassland, forest, hills and mud made time fly by and was super fun! Will be back next year!!

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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! :-)
