North Tyneside 12K Trail Run

Tyneside Offers Top Trail

Fancy taking part in one of the UK's most scenic running events?

Scheduled for 7 January next year, the North Tyneside Trail 12K is billed as 'one of the most scenic running events in the UK' and it is hard to disagree with the 12K route traversing some of the prettiest parts of North Tyneside.

Organisers say: "The run takes in the beautiful beach at Whitley Bay, the clifftops and coastal paths winding their way along to Seaton Sluice, through the trails and mud of Holywell Dene, along the Waggonways and ends with a lap of the running track at Churchill Fields.

"This year everyone's running across the beach, no going the easy route through the carpark ! But of course the choice of up the first hill or the last hill in Holywell Dene is still all yours, it doesn't matter which one you go for as either way there's a hill and you gotta get to the top!"

Race HQ is at North Shields Poly clubhouse where the race finish is situated. There will be hot and cold drinks and we are told 'lots and lots of lovely cakes, scones, flapjacks, brownies and all manner of tasty delights'!

This year, organisers are promising fantastic biodegradable medals - every medal is made from 100% recycled paper and card, has a biodegradable plant-based tencel ribbon and is filled with wildflower seeds, so once you've earned it you can keep it as long as you want or plant it in the garden!
