Sedgefield Harriers have taken over the organisation of next month’s Hamsterley Marathon and are inviting runners to take part in the race. The event, scheduled for Saturday 28 June, also comprises an 11 mile and 18.5 mile options in a race that is described as a ‘scenic gem in the North of England.’
Previously under the direction of the North East Marathon Club, the marathon takes runners on a 3-lap course on the trails of the beautiful Hamsterley Forest in Country Durham. All funds raised from June’s event will help Sedgefield Harriers build an athletics track.
Due to the limitations of the forest trails and respect to other users there is a limit of 200 so early entry is encouraged. Entry fee is priced at £20 or £22 for unattached runners and includes a t-shirt.
