Race Listing

Northumberland Coastal Run

Participants will be vying to be kings and queens at the Run Northumberland Castles Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday. The event features a new route, taking place on the roads surrounding the picturesque Northumberland village of Bamburgh and the iconic Bamburgh Castle. There may also be kings and queens at the Worksop Halloween Half Marathon (though probably slightly scarier costumes), with fancy dress being encouraged by organisers. The race goes through the beautiful National Trust Clumber Park, home to Europe’s longest lime tree avenue. 
Check out the results and upcoming events on our race listing page here.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up here, and good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
