Tasty Trails

There are some delicious sounding events planned for the north east this spring...

We’re going to get a reputation as a running news service that specialises in races with a food theme. But your correspondent will make no apologies for following on from yesterday’s Cakeathon item with news of two more delicious sounding events planned for the spring. 

North East race organiser, Muddy Roads, still has places available for its Pie & Pea 5K Trail which is scheduled for 6 April at Trimdon Grange Community Centre in County Durham.  

This is a night trail run and one that organisers promise ‘will certainly not disappoint’. It is a beautiful, scenic route with a mix of all terrains and plenty of nature to see! 

But enough about the course, you all want to know about the pies - don’t you? Organisers say: “These pies are bursting at the seams with delicious fillings. You will certainly be getting a PB to get your hands on one of these beauties.”

A little later in the calendar, but still very much a spring event is the Pizza 8K Trail on 8 May. After a great first year in 2021, it is back offering a fantastic trail route around Errington Woods (New Marske) and offering amazing views of Roseberry Topping and the cliffs of Saltburn.

After their physical exertions trail runners will head back to base to enjoy a delicious Napoli woodfired pizza. Organisers tell us: “You can choose from either meat, vegetable, vegan and we even do gluten free! These pizzas are divine - you will be wanting another one!”

As with all Muddy Roads events, those who volunteer earn a free entry into another one of their races.

If you’d like to know more about either of these races, or volunteering at another then check out the Muddy Roads website.
