The North York Moors National Park in conjunction with the Hardmoors Race Series present the Bunny Run 5k + Trail Race. The Bunny Run is staged in the beautiful North York Moors amongst some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. The BunnyRun Trail Race is well marked and marshalled so no navigational skills are needed.

So whether you are new to Trail Running or a budding athlete or simply looking for an unforgettable day out in the North York Moors, a family friendly atmosphere and some beautiful trail running awaits you.

The races start from the Sutton Bank Visitor Centre. The Visitor Centre boasts an outdoor play area; a gift shop with books and local crafts and souvenirs; woodland trails; Bike Hire with plenty of marked cycle routes around the local area; a picnic area and Tea Rooms to replace those lost calories burnt off from running.

ROUTE MAP: A provisional 2019 route map will be available here in the near future

ROUTE DISTANCE:  5K (and a little bit extra as a fathers day present )

SCHEDULE:  Start: Sutton Bank Visitors Centre, Sutton Bank, Thirsk, North Yorkshire, YO7 2EH
