Course information

The Durham course starts in St Leonard’s Playing fields before passing by County Hall. The route then loops around Aykley Heads Woods where you will get stunning views of the city. If you’re lucky you may even see some of the resident deer when you pass through the Aykley Woods nature reserve.

Meeting point

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.

There is parking available at County Hall. However, to look after our environment, we encourage you to car share or take public transport where possible. Durham train station is approximately a 10 minute walk from the start line and there are a number of bus services that stop at County Hall. The Traveline North East website can help you plan your journey.

Unfortunately, due to the steep hills and the course running on muddy and grassy paths, this event is unsuitable for wheelchair users.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course.

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. We will update on this nearer the time.
