Part of the 2018 Urban Trails series of races by Trail Outlaws.The Pieces of 8 Half Marathon starts at the foot of Penshaw Hill. The route takes in beautiful trails along the North and South side of the River Wear, with great views along the river and its broad range of wildlife and wildfowl, before the fabulous finish on Penshaw Monument itself.

We are sure you will agree, the finish and the bling with be worth the challenge. This race has everything you would want in a Trail Race.

This race also has great facilities for the whole family. Herrington Country Park has a children's play area, woodland walks and fun trail walks. There is also a great cafe and an ice cream van on the park as well.

At Trail Outlaws we are passionate about Trail Running and the benefits and positivity it can bring to ours and others lives. We are both avid trail runners of all distances and have been for many years, enjoying events all over the UK. We love the fact there is no elitism in trail running and we have seen first hand, the camaraderie involved in this fast growing sport. And we bring that to our events, encouraging and cheering on runners of all levels and abilities. We believe the trails and national parks of the North should be enjoyed by all, this is why our events take part in National Parks, National Trust land, Forestry Commission Land, Sites of Special Scientific Interest. As we believe these little gems go unlooked by runners as a whole, and we want to encourage all to enjoy them responsibly.
