Gateshead Trail 10K

With no traffic, the Gateshead Trail 10k snakes through the Derwent Walk Country Park. It is a fast, fun, and scenic race, with only a few inclines is a race that for all levels of runner. Mid-race you will find the race has sections of the route that double up creating a fantastic social element. Thanks to the rangers all the paths are also well maintained so although it is a trail race the 'off road' sectons of path are hard packed and easy to run on.

The start / finish area in Blaydon rugby club will welcome you with a relaxed family atmosphere. Bacon sandwiches, burgers and other delightful treats will be being griddled at the food point and a massage tent to smooth out any muscles.
