Race for Life 5K– Durham route

The Durham course will start at St Leonards Sports Field. The route then weaves its way up the leafy lane to Aykley Heads and then continues around Hoppers Wood and the nature areas. The view over Durham City is breathtaking from here and you may even spot the odd deer. The terrain has everything from pathways to grassland and roads. There are some steep inclines and descents throughout the course, so crossing that finish line will be even more rewarding.

    Hi there. I'm sure the event organiser would be thrilled if you volunteered to Marshall. The best thing to do would be to get in touch with them directly - https://raceforlife.cancerresearchuk.org/about-our-events/volunteer . Many thank!
