Our 5k event offers a single lap route around the landscaped grounds of Temple Newsam, starting and finishing in front of the impressive Tudor-Jacobean mansion.
The terrain is predominantly path with some small sections of flagstone/rubble paths which can be uneven in places. It is generally flat or downhill, but there is a 500m uphill stretch around the 2K point which some people may find challenging. Wheelchair users would likely need assistance to complete this section of the course
Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.me
The start line is situated in the field directly in front of Temple Newsam House, adjacent to the Courtyard and Animal Farm.

Parking (including dedicated blue badge spaces) are available within Temple Newsam on event day though must be accessed via Temple Newsam Road due to Elm Walk being closed to all vehicles.
Motorists are also able to drop off passengers near the roundabout at the end of Temple Newsam Road which will be monitored by a steward.
Various bus services drop-off along Temple Newsam Road, (please enquire with your local provider) and Leeds Train Station is 4 miles from the venue.
Event Site: The start and finish areas are both on the same grass field in front of Temple Newsam House and are within approximately 70m of each other. The field is flat and the ground is solid unless we have experienced substantial rainfall, in which case it could be boggy in places. Wheelchair users can choose to join and finish the race where the grass meets the path (approx. 30m )
The event site is easily accessible from the car park
