The Sunderland route is set in the grounds of this former colliery and starts and finishes on the field adjacent to the children’s play area, in the shadow of the amazing Penshaw Monument. The route explores the park, taking in the lake, local wildlife and providing beautiful views across the North East. The course is mainly on footpaths with a couple of hills along the way.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.
Event parking is provided at this venue. Follow directions from stewards and signage on the day.
This event is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance. The paths are extremely uneven throughout the course with narrow sections and inclines making the terrain difficult for wheelchair users. Assistance is definitely recommended.
Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19.
