Chopwell Woodland Park is a 360-hectare mixed woodland on the fringe of Gateshead. Miles of woodland paths and old colliery railway tracks make it extremely popular with walkers and cyclists.  The race route follows single trails and mountain bike tracks which are not often accessed by runners.  Some very steep technical terrain makes for adrenaline fuelled quad blasting descending and with almost 1350ft of ascent crammed into the 10k you’re  going to be working you’re socks off throughout.

The race starts and finishes at the Pines which is near to the main car park.

The event will comply with all Covid regulations in place at the time.
