Trail racing that will take you away from the comfort of urban gravel tracks and into the heart of the glorious landscapes, nature and heritage that we have here in the North East of England.

Blanchland Show race is a great way to get an event  in while convincing other family members it's a family day out! There's loads of stuff going on before, during and after the event, and there's always a great atmosphere. 

The event will start at 11am,  centre-stage in the main show ring with a steep climb to start on a gravel track past Pennypie House (on the Pennine Journey trail) and onto the moors. From the top of the climb, you will cross the trail heading breifly into Slaley Forest (the 1/2 does a big loop of the forest),  before popping back out onto the moors, where the 10k and 1/2 merge. You'll then pick up The Carriers’ Way and follow that back to Blanchland. 

Race distances and elevation: 10k- Approx 7 miles and 900ft of ascent.

Race distances and elevation: 1/2-Approx 13.5 miles and 1400ft of ascent.

Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Senior Male and Female, and 1st place in V40-49, V50-59 and V60-69 and 70+ Male and Female

Other Information

We are an eco-friendly company, and on that basis, we don’t use disposable plastic cups and don’t offer T shirts as standard – many go to waste after events. As with all of our races we will be collecting pre-loved running kit so that we can pass it all onto an up-cycling scheme which we are supporting. We are actively encouraging participants to give something back to the environment which is why your race goodies are a little bit different. We are including a packet of mixed wildflower seeds for you to plant which will encourage bees and other pollinators to visit your garden and are great for the environment.

You can access our car sharing group on Facebook, where you can arrange car sharing opportunities with other race day participants. Great for the environment and great for your pocket.... and you could win free race places in our car share raffle! Car Share group
