The Great Narth Run. Yes, you read that right – “The Great NARTH Run”. Perhaps not quite as grand as the half-marathon in Newcastle upon Tyne with a similar name that every runner has heard of, but we’re hoping for great things nonetheless.
It’s all going to happen on Sunday 23 June 2013 in Maryland Woods near The Narth - a fun run for everyone aged 9 and over; a 5K race for over 11’s; and a 10K race for the over 15’s. This will be the first year the event has been held; the intention is that it will become an annual event. The aim is to provide a series of races that will appeal to runners of all ages and abilities, and provide a safe and enjoyable day out for runners and spectators alike. All the races are off road on forest tracks.
And to keep everyone fed and watered before, during, and after the races, there will be hot and cold drinks, bacon rolls, and a BBQ.
