An out and back race to the summit of one of the Cheviots highest points. This is early Jan so you’ll need to tackle whatever the weather throws at you. Previous years have had snow, sleet, bogs, high winds and always a little bit of special sauce thrown in. When you get back you get dunked in a river and then warmed up with a hot soup.
Iconic scenery such as Reaveley Hill, Cunyan Crags, Dunmoor, Hedgehope and a bit of the dreaded Comb Fell. Hosted at Ingram cafe which is a prime location for coffee, cakes and all things designed to destroy diets.

The Gateshead Trail 10k that winds through the Derwent Walk Country Park is a fast, fun, and scenic race, with only a few inclines. It is a race that is suitable for all levels of runner. Mid-race you will find the race has a section of the route that doubles up creating a fantastic social element. Thanks to the rangers all the paths are also well maintained so although it is a trail race the 'off road' sections of path are hard packed and easy to run on. Essentially its a great introduction to world of trail running, away from the busy roads amongst scenery.
The start / finish area in Blaydon rugby club will welcome you with a relaxed family atmosphere. Bacon sandwiches, burgers and other delightful treats will be available from our street food vendors as well as freshly brewed Coffee from our artisan Coffee guys. and a massage tent to smooth out any sore muscles.
