Route description
Route description

The route gives you the opportunity to explore almost all of this mammoth Park. Notable landmarks include the Park's lake and of course the iconic Heaton Hall country house, the park's main attraction.

The Half Marathon route differs slightly from the 5km and 10km runs, however there will be course marshals throughout to keep you in the right direction.
