Don't listen to the criticism about the change of course and people having to walk for a few seconds. The organisers had little time to change the course due to Neville's Cross flooding . I have done Durham 10K for the past 3 year and every year it's been different and I have enjoyed the change every year. The changing of this course every year makes it a special race looking forward to next year thank you… read more

Route description

Whichever you elect for, you will finish at Palace Green in between the Cathedral and the Castle, following in the footsteps of pilgrims who have climbed the hill for almost a thousand years. With a little luck you may have produced you’re own historical performance to match the surrounding splendour!

The Durham 10k run is a fantastic run, it’s the second time I have done this run and have been really impressed with the friendly volunteers and the great vibrant feel to the occasion.

Road closure meant course was not brilliant. Lots of bottlenecks, u turns. Some confusion between 5k and 10k. Riverside path at 1km should not have been used in my opinion. At the very least, should have been shut to public. Great to see Steve Cram and Paula Radcliffe. Really encouraged by volunteers. Start and finish were excellent.
