Set in the grounds of this former colliery, the race starts and finishes on the main field in the shadow of the amazing Penshaw Monument. The route goes around the park, where you can take in the views across the North East as well as the local wildlife. The course is mainly on footpaths with a couple of hills along the way.
The meeting point is adjacent to the park’s cafe.
On the day
As well as the family activities we'll be providing, the park itself offers plenty to do, so bring them all along to support you.
