This 10k is set on the fantastic trails surrounding Penshaw Monument. This race has everything you would want in a trail race - great views set on lovely trails. We describe the route as undulating, some that have actually taken part in the race, go as far to say that this course is brutal for a 10k! This race also has great facilities for the whole family. Herrington Park has a children's play area, woodland walks and fun trail walks. Penshaw was the first race in the Urban Trails series of races.

Wooler Trail Marathon is set in the heart of Northumberland National Park and includes many splendid uninterrupted views to the far horizon and many undulations along the way. The race starts in Wooler before heading towards some of the best views in the country, if not the world. The race is split across two days so why not come up for the whole weekend. The Sunday after the race is party night in Wooler!

This is a challenging Trail Marathon with just over 6000 feet of ascent, but the views available are well worth the effort. The half marathon route also offer a challenging run with some of the same great views. All the routes will be marked with tape and signs.
