Route information
This 5k and 10k event takes place around the iconic Tamworth Castle in Staffordshire. This Grade I listed Norman Castle dates dates back to the 11th Century, first falling into disuse after an onslaught of Viking Invasions.
The race will start and finish in the beautiful grounds surrounding the Castle and will wind its way through out into the town before following a section of the canal in Fazeley. You will then return for a heroic finish in the castle grounds.
This race is perfect for runners of all abilities, from those looking to enjoy a Sunday morning run in spectacular surroundings or for experienced athletes attempting to clock a PB.
The course will be clearly marked throughout, with a water station at the 5k mark.
