This 10 mile trail run is set in stunning village of Slindon. Starting off at the Slindon Cricket Club on Mill Road the run route will take you out from the cricket club and into the slindon pits for your first burst of mud, water and sand. 1 lap of the pits to get you warmed up, the route will then lead you off into the woods for some scenic woodland trails for a good few miles. The route is an out and back with a visit to the ‘steps of doom’ . When you feel like your legs can’t take anymore, we finish you off with another lap of the pits followed by a run back to the cricket club where you will find the finish line waiting for you, along with some refreshments and fresh fruit. Friends and Family are most welcome to stay and support you. You will be starting and finishing in the same place, so a perfect spot for your supporters to take pictures.
From Alnwick to Bamburgh Castle all around the Northumberland coast – Good luck to Geordie Paul who is racing this event
The Northumberland coastline boasts some of the most dramatic coastal scenery in the UK and is best known for its sweeping sandy beaches, rolling dunes, high rocky cliffs, and isolated islands. This striking landscape is steeped in history and there are few sights on earth that compare with Bamburgh Castle and its expansive and exposed bayside setting.

Southend Pier is the town’s historical icon as well as being the longest pleasure Pier in the world. It stretches for 1.34 miles, putting Southend on the map as well as into the record books.
Since it was built in 1830 the Pier has seen both good and troubled times. With its many changes it has evolved to meet the trends of the passing decades of the 20th and 21st centuries.
It is a true survivor, having lived through fires, boat crashes, two world wars and economic decline as well as braving the elements of Mother Nature in beating off the effects of the weather and the waves.
