Course information

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.

The Sunderland route is a single lap course set in the grounds of this former colliery that starts and finishes on the field adjacent to the children’s play area. The route explores the park, taking in the lake, local wildlife and providing beautiful views of Penshaw Monument and across the North East. The course is mainly on footpaths with a couple of hills along the way. The main event site is on grass so may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather. There are a mixture of obstacles along the way including inflatables, climbing, crawling and mud!

Remember to bring a towel and change of clothes for the way home!

Please arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
