Course information

Our 10k event offers a double lap route around the grounds of Temple Newsam Park. The course is generally flat and the terrain is mainly grass and tarmac paths with small sections of woodland tracks which may be uneven in places.

Walking 10K could take up to 3 hours to complete and is the more challenging of our events but should be suitable for most levels of fitness and experience. Unfortunately this event cannot accomodate wheelchair users or pushchairs due to the terrain.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

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.

The meeting point/start line is within the large open field in front of Temple Newsam House. This will be clearly sign-posted from the designated event parking in the field on the other side of Temple Newsam House.

Pedestrians: Please access from Elm Walk. A steward will direct you towards the meeting point/start line. Other pedestrian entrances to the park may also be used but please be vigilant as you may cross the course at multiple points on your way to the meeting point/start line.

General event parking: Please access from Temple Newsam Road. A steward will direct you to the car park. Please adhere to the one way system and 5mph restrictions at all times.

Wheelchair users: Unfortunately, none of our events are this venue are currently suitable for wheelchair users. This is due to the large sections of the course being on grass or narrow woodland tracks with no suitable path available as an alternative. Nearby venue Bradford offers an alternative course more suitable for wheelchair users.

Pushchairs: Our 10k event cannot accomodate pushchairs due to the narrow and uneven terrain in some sections.

Dogs: Our 10k event can accomodate dogs. Please be mindful of others whilst on the course and maintain a short lease at all times. Dog bowls are provided half way along our 10k course for thirsty pooches.
