Race Listing

Brathay Windermere Marathon

Runners of all ages and abilities will take part in the Middlesbrough 5K and 2K Fun Run this weekend, featuring a revised route this year due to refurbishment work taking place in Middlehaven. An udder great race (ahem) is the Crazy Cow 10K, which will see runners milking it for all it's worth. The bovine-themed event promises a great atmosphere with ‘comedy marshals’. Not wishing to end on a bum note, the recently reformed Washington Running Club hosts the Bottoms Up Cup on Sunday to raise funds and promote the club.

Check out the results and upcoming events on our race listing page here.
