Participants will start the 5k course at St Leonards Sports Field. The route weaves its way up the leafy lane to Aykley Heads, and then continues around Hoppers Wood and the nature areas. The view over Durham City is breathtaking from here, and you may even spot the odd deer. The terrain has everything from pathways to grass land and roads. There are also some steep inclines and descents throughout the course, so taking part will be even more rewarding.
The meeting point is St Leonards School Field, next to Durham Light Infantry.
On the day
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you.
