Course Details

surroundings.

The challenging 10k follows a short, downhill gravel section before swiftly moving into a sharp uphill, passing through mature pine trees. The route levels out and offers breathtaking views of Weardale and the North Pennines. The highest point of the route is quickly left behind as a right hand junction takes you onto a trail surface with loose stone and sand. The descent, adjacent to a picturesque burn, is renowned for spotting deer. The trail descends, gradually hugging the burn and meeting the finish line.

The 5km route is a beautiful circuit north of the Euden Beck. This takes in some of the highest points in this part of the valley, offering plenty of challenge for the shorter distance.

What's Included

All finishers will receive a goody bag which includes a fantastic Forest Runner neck tube. Beautiful solid oak trophies are up for grabs as well as some super prizes from our event sponsors, Merrell.

Not only that, you’re helping us to plant more trees; all profits go back into your local forest so that we can keep growing, shaping and caring for our forests across the nation.
Forest Runner events are managed in partnership with Events of the North.
