Auckland Trail Race

Auckland Castle commands a prominent position overlooking the River Wear, surrounded by 200 acres of idyllic parkland, making this a perfect spot for our trail run. Starting at the Robinson Arch, the run will take you past our Walled Gardens, into the park, where you can take in its natural beauty as well as sites such as the Deer House. At approximately 5 miles it includes all terrain, trail and forest. On your return you will finish at The Wyatt Arch. There is a 2 mile Fun Run for Under 16s to enjoy the parkland as well - under 8s to be accompanied by an adult. The runs are organised by Shildon Running and Athletic Club ( and Auckland Castle Trust in partnership.

Whilst the Palace is closed for renovation, during the weekend you will be able to attend a behind the scenes tour of the works in progress. These are limited in capacity, so please book on in advance.

The 2 mile Fun Run will begin at 10am, with the 5 mile Trail Race beginning at 11am.
