Duncombe Park Running Festival- Helmsley

With the old English name of Elmeslac, Helmsley predates the Domesday Book. It was first settled in around 3,000 BC and small farming communities lived in the town throughout the Neolithic period, Bronze and Iron Ages and into Roman times. The lands around Helmsley were held by William the Conquerors brother. You can still visit the ruins of the Norman castle, and see ancient oak trees in Duncombe Park dating from this time.

The oldest surviving house in Helmsley is the medieval Canons Garth, the vicarage. The Norman castle, dating back over 900 years, evolved over the centuries, from a mighty medieval fortress to a luxurious Tudor mansion, to a Civil War stronghold and a romantic Victorian ruin. It is open all year round for visitors to enjoy, under the care of English Heritage. The Walled Gardens also enjoy a historic past, tracing their roots back to 1759.

Endurancelife North York Moors Marathon

Wholly located within the National Park, and utilising sections of the Cleveland Way, this area is superbly suited to trail running. The course is rich and varied with reminders to Yorkshire's fine heritage all around - from the dry stone walls and disused railway lines, to the hardy sheep flocks up on the moors. The world famous Whitby Abbey is just a few miles up the road, so there is plenty to make a weekend long visit well worthwhile.

At 26.2 miles, it’s a massive test of physical and mental resilience. If it’s a PB you’re after, you can choose a fast, flat city course, or else go for a more challenging trail run in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

Think a marathon might be pushing it? Why not ease yourself in with a 5k or 10k run instead?
